There is one primary thing you should be concerned with following your Macon car accident case: after your car accident, you should be concerned with your health and getting better.
Do not let concerns over the amount of recovery you will obtain in your case drive the decisions that you make in terms of your treatment. Unnecessarily incurring medical expenses will hurt your case and, most likely, your long-term health. It is critical that you obtain the care that you need, but be clear about your motivation in seeking medical care: you do it in order to get your health back following the car accident. You do not seek the treatment in order to run up the medical expenses that presumably provide the basis for the settlement amount that you will receive.
You should also be mindful that there is a very complex dynamic between the amount of available insurance coverage, your medical expenses, and your ultimate recovery. Many people (and lawyers) forget that if there is, for example, $25,000.00 in available insurance coverage and a person runs up an additional $4,000.00 in medical costs beyond the $8,000.00 that were clearly necessary, the client may have very well simply have given up $4,000.00 of their own money to medical providers. You should consult with a qualified personal injury attorney regarding your case to avoid this type of problem.
