If you choose to do nothing, then you will be the one who pays for all of your medical bills.

But It Doesn’t Have to Be Like That

Instead, you may be able to receive compensation for past, current, and future health care costs from the trucker, trucking company, or other party that caused your truck accident or from the insurance companies that insure the defendant(s).

As with any type of damages, you will need to prove the value of your damages to the insurance company or to the court. The evidence that you may need to establish the value of your damages could include:

  • Copies of your medical bills.
  • Receipts for prescriptions, rehabilitation therapies, or assistive medical devices.
  • Testimony from medical experts about your future medical needs.

Your truck accident lawyer will work with you to identify the right types of evidence for your claim.
