The Financial Side Of Recovery

When we think about a car accident or a slip and fall, we typically think about the physical injuries that will need healing or how close that person could have been to death. While helping the victim physically recover from their injuries should be top priority, it isn’t the only thing you need to be concerned with.

Recovery Is Expensive

Until you or a loved one has been in an accident, you cannot realize just how much of a toll it can take on a person. The physical and even emotional injuries from that incident do not come cheaply. In fact, medical debt is the number one reason why an individual has to apply for bankruptcy in the United States.

Here are just a few ways that an accident can affect your financial health:

Medical bills – Everything from the cost of the ambulance that took you to the hospital to the physical therapy after can add up quickly. Every visit, test, medication, and physical therapy session is another medical bill to add to the list. Before you know it, you are swimming in debt and stress for an injury you are still trying to recover from. If the injury is severe enough, you may be needing extra medical treatment and care for years to come which means the medical bills will be rolling in for a long time.

Wages lost – Depending on your injury, you may not be able to just hop back into work like normal. This means that during your recovery, you are making little to nothing when you are likely to need the extra money more than ever. This can be especially bad if you have others who are depending on that source of income to eat and pay the bills. If the injury is severe enough, you may not be unable to return to work at all.

Repairs – If your accident occurred in a vehicle, you may be needing a few repairs, especially if this is your only mode of transportation. After all, you need to get to all of those doctor’s appointments somehow.

Emotional/Mental care – It is not uncommon for those involved in an accident to need psychological therapy after what they have been through. Unfortunately, this can mean there are extra bills rolling in to pay for your psychological care and treatment.
