The Cost of a Trucking Accident Starts at the ER

Last year, The Washington Post reported that “the average emergency room visit now costs 40 percent more than a month’s rent.” Hundreds of millions of people visit the emergency room each year, with about 43 percent of all hospital admissions originating in the ER.

Costs will, of course, vary depending on the severity of an injury. But if you have been involved in a trucking accident, injuries can include:

  • iStock_000022320645_MediumStrains and sprains
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Sciatica flare-ups
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Bruises, lacerations

A victim of a trucking accident may suffer one or all of the above, and a trip to the emergency room with the subsequent medical costs can really add up. We are here to help victims be compensated for these kinds of costs.

How Quickly Fees Add Up

A collision can be a painful experience in many respects. After the initial trauma of the accident, there might be multiple medical visits, physical therapy and other unforeseen costs that last much longer than the injuries themselves.

Common costs associated with trucking accidents can include:

  • Ambulance fee
  • Emergency room costs
  • Hospital bills
  • Follow-up visits and physical therapy
  • Pain medications

No one expects to be in an accident and, even with insurance, these costs can cause a strain on any financial situation.
