When the Insurer Questions ‘Expensive’ Medical Treatments

When the Insurer Questions ‘Expensive’ Medical Treatments

One of the most upsetting factors about being involved in a car accident is how easily it could have been prevented. This may really hit home with you if you have recently been involved in a car, truck, or motorcycle crash due to the negligence of others. In far too many cases today, accidents are caused by distracted drivers as what was once just a growing trend has now developed into a massive problem on neighborhood roads, city streets, and major highways throughout Texas and the entire US.

Even with texting bans now implemented in most states, the problem rages on, leaving all too many casualties and victims with serious injuries ranging from traumatic brain injuries to spinal trauma and paralysis, soft tissue damage, broken arms and legs, contusions and concussions, and more.

Along with the medical expenses piling up, you may be experiencing great pain from the trauma of a car accident, but also extreme emotional duress, as you are left to worry about how you are going to pay all the bills when you may have been or will be unable to work for some time (in some cases, car accident victims are unable to go back to work permanently due to debilitating injuries). This is one of the most frightening parts about being in a serious wreck—and without the help of a skilled car accident attorney, the repercussions can be catastrophic and long-lasting, both physically and financially.

If the insurance agency is not behaving as they should be in terms of investigating and paying out on the claim you submitted, you may feel quite disappointed and even devastated at their treatment, especially when you know you have a valid case and serious injuries causing very real physical and financial hardship. Not only that, you may have had other family members who were in the car accident too and require care from you at home now, along with medical procedures and continued doctors’ appointments.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for an insurer to question everything, but especially charges that apply to medical treatment and procedures. Once that occurs, not only is it time to consult with a skilled injury attorney like Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, PLLC, but it is also time to have the corresponding medical professionals involved explain to the insurance company what procedures were performed and why they were so important, along with verifying any accompanying costs. This may require affidavits and even an interview with the insurance company on the part of the medical professional, but that is part of their job. Once you put your case in the hands of your attorney, it is time for you to focus on healing and let everyone else do their job to help you.
