Future Medical Expenses
If you’ve suffered an injury and have made a public liability or personal injury claim, one of the biggest issues is how the injury will impact you in the future. It can be very difficult to predict. The best that anyone can do for you is to make an educated guess.
This puts a lot of stress on you in deciding how much injury compensation is acceptable – how do you know what is appropriate? And how do you calculate your future medical expenses?
The basic principle is that if there is medical evidence that supports a claim for future medical expenses, an insurer shouldn’t offer you a lump sum payment in compensation for your future medical treatment.
The key is the medical evidence, because an insurer won’t compensate you for medical expenses for the rest of your life unless you have produced the medical evidence in support of your claim.
This means that it’s important to get a lawyer to help you to calculate your entitlement to future medical expenses before you decide to accept any offer of settlement.
