What Medical Expenses are Covered?

Can I seek financial compensation for medical expenses after an auto accident? If so, what's covered?

The general answer to this question is yes, though coverage will depend on the unique case. The pursuit of financial compensation for medical expenses is one of the key parts of any car accident insurance claim or lawsuit. As a victim of an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation for any and all medical-related costs, from hospitalization to medication to travel expenses to and from medical appointments. The type and amount of coverage may vary depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, the severity of your injuries and the current and lasting impact these injuries have had and will have on your life.

Though every claim is different, a victim of an auto accident may be able to pursue monetary damages for the following medical expenses:

  • Hospitalization.
  • Emergency room visits.
  • Other medical appointments related to the injuries.
  • Chiropractic care.
  • X-rays, MRIs and other diagnostic tests.
  • Medication (prescription and over-the-counter).
  • Medical supplies (bandages, etc.).
  • Physical therapy.
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments.
  • Ongoing treatment, if necessary.
  • In-home medical care, if necessary.
