Medical Bills

Serious injuries can lead to expensive medical bills. After suffering from a personal injury, you need to have documented evidence on the types of injuries you have sustained and the extent of your medical bills. There are many qualified Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeons, Atlanta Neurologists, Marietta and Alpharetta Chiropractic Clinics, and Physical Therapists that treat people injured in auto accidents. Our advice to all of our clients is to seek immediate medical attention and if the police officer issuing the police report on the scene asks if you need to go to the hospital, the answer should be yes if you believe that hospital treatment will help diagnose your injury. If you were injured locally, you can obtain your Police Report from the city of Alpharetta or Johns Creek. If the accident occurred in Marietta, the city of Marietta or possibly Cobb County will have the police report available within a few days. The city of Roswell Police Report and the City of Cumming Police Report can also be obtained very shortly after the accident. The opposing party will be responsible for payment of all of these medical bills that you incur.

You should be compensated for all medical costs you will accrue from the accident. Treatments for serious injuries such as a torn rotator cuff or bulging disc can cost over $20,000. You should ask your Atlanta Orthopedist, Neurologist or other personal injury surgeon or physician to provide an estimate for all future medical bills, because your own insurance may not be sufficient.
