If you have been injured in an accident that requires surgery, you may be worried about how you will pay for such an expensive medical procedure. Even though many victims of accidents are not responsible for their own injuries and will later receive a settlement or court-awarded damages to cover the cost of medical bills, that provides little comfort to the victim who needs surgery before their case comes to a resolution.
Follow Your Doctor’s Advice
The longer you wait to receive a necessary surgery following a traumatic accident, the worse your injuries may become, the more work you will miss, and the longer it will take for your life to return to normal. Your health should be your first priority. If your doctor believes that waiting to receive your surgery could exacerbate your injuries, you should follow her advice.
Immediately Consult With an Attorney
When you are injured in a serious accident, it is imperative that you immediately consult an experienced personal injury attorney, especially if the severity of your injuries requires surgery. Your attorney can advise you as to which doctor may be the best choice for the particular surgery you may need. A good attorney may also be able to set you up with a doctor who can perform the surgery on a lien, meaning that you will not have to pay for the procedure until your case comes to a resolution.
Damage Awards When Surgery is Needed
If another party is responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you may be eligible to recover the costs associated with your injuries. This typically includes medical bills – including the cost of surgical procedures – as well as hospital stays, rehabilitative care centers, physical therapy services, pain medications, medical equipment, and other health care costs.
