Get Compensation To Cover The Cost Of Surgery

When you suffer an injury that requires one or more surgeries, you know that your medical care is going to be expensive. If the injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to get compensation for the cost of surgery.

At Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. we have been handling serious injury claims in Austin and throughout Texas for more than 25 years. We recognize that surgery is a serious expense. We take great care to seek enough compensation to cover all surgical procedures that result from injuries suffered in auto wrecks and other accidents.

How To Calculate Compensation When An Injury Requires Surgery

Be aware that, immediately after an injury, doctors may not know whether surgery will be required or the number of surgeries that may be needed. This is why it is important that you do not accept a quick settlement from the insurance company. It may not end up being enough to cover surgery and follow-up care, including physical therapy.

Your attorney will work closely with your doctor as he or she diagnoses your injury. When appropriate, we may bring in other medical experts to review your condition. As the treatment that will be required for your injury becomes clear, we will calculate the cost of that treatment. We will request that the insurance company provide a settlement that covers everything. If a fair settlement is not offered, we will take your case to trial.

Injuries That Require Surgical Treatment

In the most catastrophic cases, the need for surgery may be immediate. Brain injury, neck injury and other serious injury victims may go into surgery quickly after a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or other accident.

However, there are many cases in which the need for surgery is not obvious at first. For example, a broken bone may be treated nonsurgically, but later it may be discovered that surgery is required. Not only will the surgery be costly, but it will require further time off from work. We take great care to seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills and more.
