Minimum Amount of Medical Bills
If you are seeking compensation after an accident, you may want to know if there is a minimum amount of medical bills needed to file a personal injury claim.
Is there a minimum amount of medical bills needed to file a personal injury claim?
I had a client last week ask me if he had enough medical bills for the case to be justified, and my answer to that is there isn’t a minimum amount of medical bills. Usually, in my cases, you have to have some medical bills, but I don’t even like to talk about medical bills. For instance, if you have someone that has their arm cut off, it may be very cheap, a few thousand dollars to sew up the stub, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the long-term disability that that person faces after losing an arm. He may be a pianist, and he’s no longer able to play the piano. He might have been a surgeon and not able to do surgical procedures anymore because he’s lost an arm. The real question is not the amount of the medical bills, but the the impact on a person’s life. Oftentimes, I don’t even talk about medical bills and expenses when I go to trial. I am not a bill collector or an insurance company that’s going to collect that back under some claim under your own personal health insurance policy.
I am an attorney that’s trying to give you justice for your ills. If you have $100,000 in medical bills, that sounds like a lot of money. In reality, you don’t want to hold that verdict down and have the jury use that as an anchor for $100,000 being sufficient for compensation. The real compensation is the emotional loss to you, the pain and suffering, the impact on your family and your life. That’s what we’re after— the real damages of the case.
