Explaining General Costs Of Injuries

General Costs Of Injuries

Hospital Stays

While costs between hospitals can vary and sometimes vary widely, the average cost of a hospital stay generally comes in at approximately $3,000 per day. Therefore, if someone is injured badly enough to require a hospital stay of one week, it will lead to a total cost of more than $20,000. While some people with health insurance will have some of these costs covered, most policies do not cover every dime of those costs.

Surgery Costs

People who are injured in Florida car accidents can be in need of any number of different surgeries ranging from repairing and setting broken bones to back surgery to neurosurgery for brain injuries. Once again, no two surgical costs are exactly alike, but knee surgeries can cost upwards of $20,000 and brain surgeries can cost anywhere between $50,000 and $250,000, depending on the complexity of the procedure needed.

Lost Income

People who are injured badly enough in Florida car accidents that they will miss work or even have to move into a different vocation altogether stand to lose a high amount of income, and this can be a loss that never stops hurting the person who has been harmed. If someone was earning $60,000 and is unable to work for three months, that equals $15,000 in lost earnings that will not be available to pay the simple monthly bills that are part of everyone’s life.

Overall, a person who has been harmed in a Florida car accident can wind up looking at costs that extend into six figures at a minimum. For those who are permanently injured and who will require ongoing care and rehabilitation, that total can quickly stretch into the millions. If you or someone you love has been harmed in a collision, you owe it to yourself and those you love to seek redress by obtaining the help of Florida car accident lawyers who understand what it takes to hold those responsible for injuries accountable.
