All personal injury claims involve a significant medical component, even if there are no allegations of negligence on the part of a health-care provider. Medical expenses – including bills for doctor’s visits, hospital stays, medical tests, rehabilitation, therapy, counseling, assistive devices, home health nurses, and others – account for much of the compensation sought in a personal injury claim.
Medical matters also affect another major component of many personal injury claims: disability and related lost wages and diminished earning capacity.
Issues about the severity of injuries and the necessity of medical treatments and costs are often second only to liability (who is at fault) when it comes to disputes in personal injury claims. In some situations, liability is clear and the primary argument is over how badly a victim was hurt and how much he or she deserves in compensation for those injuries.
With medical questions playing such an important role in personal injury lawsuits, a lawyer’s medical knowledge and ability to draw on resources in the health-care field can have a significant impact on the outcome of a case. Compensation often turns on showing how badly an accident victim was hurt, why the medical treatments were necessary, and how the injuries affected the victim’s life, including lost wages from missed work, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
