What car accident injuries require surgery?
There are many types of car accident injuries that may need surgery at UF Health, Baptist or another nearby hospital. You may need:
- Emergency surgery, especially if there are internal injuries or internal bleeding due to your car accident
- Surgery on your neck or back
- Spinal surgery
- Brain surgery
- Rotator cuff or other shoulder surgery
- Arthroscopic surgery on a joint
- Reconstructive surgery
- Knee surgery if you suffered a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament injury) or another knee injury
- Herniated disc surgery
- Plastic surgery if your injuries resulted in disfigurement
- Surgery to stabilize bone fractures
- Torn soft tissue surgery
Hearing that you need surgery can be very stressful. You wonder if you are going to be OK. You worry about complications. You think about how long you will have to stay in the hospital and what recovery will be like.
You should be focused on your recovery after surgery. Our Jacksonville law firm can take care of everything else, including dealing with insurance companies and negotiating the maximum financial compensation you deserve for your car accident surgery settlement.
How much is my car accident surgery settlement worth?
Surgery and other medical procedures due to a car accident can cost a lot of money. The costs of diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and follow-up appointments can add up very quickly and become overwhelming. You may worry about how you are going to pay your medical bills, especially if you are left unable to work.
The bottom line is you should not have to pay for surgery yourself. The insurance company should cover the costs of your medical treatment and other expenses, now and in the future.
In short, a car accident settlement involving surgery can be quite significant – and the insurance companies will fight hard to minimize it. This is why our Jacksonville car accident attorneys take such cases so seriously. We know you only have one opportunity to obtain the money for a lifetime’s worth of car accident expense, and we want to make that opportunity count.
Our Jacksonville car accident lawyers can handle tough cases
If a negligent driver is responsible for the injuries you suffered and the surgery you need, you shouldn’t have to pay. Recovering financial compensation can be complicated, however. The driver may have been speeding, texting or operating recklessly – but may deny doing anything wrong and refuse to accept responsibility.
Don’t expect the insurance companies to help. They are mostly concerned about protecting their bottom line. In order to keep their profits as high as possible, they will try to keep your payments as low as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation.
Insurance companies may question the seriousness of your injuries and whether you even need surgery. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing and had nothing to do with the car accident. They may try to blame you for causing the accident. Or they may make you a lowball settlement offer that falls far short of covering the damages you have suffered.
Our attorneys have been fighting insurance companies on behalf of the injured in Jacksonville since 1974. We know the tactics they use and how to overcome the obstacles they put in your way. Our lawyers hold negligent parties accountable and help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
