People often have financial setbacks after they get sick or a traumatic event has occurred, such as a serious car crash injury. Unfortunately, many car accident victims not only suffer serious physical injuries, but they also suffer financial damages as a result of their injuries. No matter how serious an injury is, an insurance adjuster will still attempt to settle a car accident claim for as little money as possible.

If you have suffered a lower leg injury in a car accident on University Parkway, you may not be able to stand, walk, or bear weight on your leg. In fact, you may need surgery and physical therapy to help you heal properly. Unfortunately, surgical costs at Sarasota Memorial Hospital or Blake Medical Center are expensive. Additionally, complications may arise and another surgery may be required. During this time, you are likely missing out on the income you were used to making since your injury is preventing you from working.

While insurance adjusters know your financial damages are serious, they will attempt to downplay the seriousness of your leg and feet injuries. Because we want you to get the best compensation possible following your lower leg crash injuries, here is a list you should collect compensation for, including:

  • ER visit
  • MRI, x-rays, and other tests
  • Surgical costs
  • Anesthesia costs
  • Hospital charges
  • Prescription costs
  • Medical device costs
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost income
  • Future lost income
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering

Because you didn’t ask to be injured in an accident, you shouldn’t have to pay the price both physically and financially. Make sure you get the financial recovery that you deserve by adding up your damages for each item on the above list.
