Yes, future medical expenses that are the result of a car accident should always be included in the insurance claim. Establishing the amount is difficult, and it is advisable to consult a doctor as well as a personal injury attorney before signing any initial agreement.
When calculating the amount of compensation car accident victims should receive, insurance companies should add future medical expenses as well.
According to Florida Statute, car accident victims can be reimbursed for future medical expenses as long as these treatments are the result of the crash, they are required by licensed physicians, dentists or chiropractic doctors and they are performed in accredited facilities.
Of course, establishing the exact cost of these medical services is difficult, especially if the settlement is signed soon after the accident occurred.
To make sure they receive the proper compensation for their injuries, victims should avoid signing an early agreement and should also contact a personal injury attorney who will work together with medical experts to determine the most appropriate cost of their future medical expenses related to the accident.
