Medical expenses stemming from fatal motor vehicle accidents

Fatal motor vehicle accidents happen all too often on the roads of California. The roads have become a dangerous place due to high rates of speed and the distractions for drivers these days. Fatal motor vehicle accidents do not just impact the victim, but also the victim's family, friends, other motorists and passengers. These accidents can cost victims and their families thousands of dollars in medical expenses.

A fatal motor vehicle accident leaves a long line of sadness in its wake, no matter when the victim actually passes from his or her injuries. For those who die during the accident, the family is left to wonder what happened and why it happened. For those who die following the accident, after a lengthy stay in the hospital, the family will be left with thousands of dollars of medical expenses.

Some of the medical expenses that stem from fatal motor vehicle accidents include the following:

- Ambulance transportation

- Emergency room bills

- Surgical bills

- Bills for medical tests (CT scans, x-rays, blood tests and more)

- Bills for medical equipment (hospital bed, oxygen tank, wheelchair, motorized wheelchair, cane, ramp and more)

- In-home health care personnel

- Rehabilitation

- Doctor visits

Medical expenses can get as high as $60,000 over the lifetime of a person injured in a car accident, with the majority of the medical costs coming within 18 months of the accident.

Medical expenses can become so overwhelming that family members might no longer be able to pay them, especially after insurance stops covering the bills or if the out-of-pocket deductible has yet to be met. Don't let these bills reach a collection agency. Speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to find out how you can be compensated for the death of a loved one in a fatal motor vehicle accident.
