After suffering a serious injury in Chicago, one of the most important losses you’ll feel is your medical expenses. The cost of healthcare in the U.S. is devastatingly high, and the liable party should be compelled to cover each and every loss you have endured due to your injuries.
Below, we go into further detail about how you can establish negligence and ensure that every single medical expense is taken into consideration when calculating the value of your Chicago personal injury claim.
Establish Negligence of Another
In order to get your medical expenses paid after an injury in Chicago, or anywhere in Illinois, you must be able to prove that another party’s negligence caused your injuries.
Maybe you suffered a back injury after being hit by a drunk driver, or perhaps you have brain damage after a slip-and-fall in a department store, for example. If negligence, reckless, or irresponsible conduct can be proven, the liable party will then be obligated to cover your losses.
Ensure Every Medical Bill Is Accounted For
It is important that you seek recovery of every single medical expense that relates to your injuries so you don’t get stuck with any unexpected losses. This might include:
- Hospital bills
- Medical equipment
- Physical or occupational therapy
- Costs of diagnostic imaging
- Costs of prescription medications
- Expected future medical expenses
