Rehabilitation costs in personal injury cases

If you see commercials for personal injury attorneys, it is common for them to advertise how much they have been able to recover for their clients. We think this is fair (obviously) because the recoveries are a vehicle for accident victims to understand that they do have rights and that they can move on from horrific accidents.

So when you hear about multi-million dollar personal injury awards, it is important to understand that these are not necessarily windfalls similar to hitting the lottery. There are a number of costs associated with getting the victim back to where they were physically and mentally. This means that there are additional costs for rehabilitation and physical therapy.

A prime example is how Tracy Morgan is still in the midst of his recovery, even a year after the horrific accident that changed his life. During a recent interview with Matt Lauer of the Today show, the comedian explained how he had his good days and bad days; especially when he was hospitalized. (Long story short, he was not so nice to medical staff).

Morgan also explained that he was not 100 percent healthy, even with the amount of time that has transpired since the crash. He spent a great deal of time at a rehabilitation facility, and the costs of staying there were not disclosed. Nevertheless, it appears that Wal-Mart will compensate the center where Morgan was treated.

In the meantime, if you have been injured in a car accident and need information on monetary damages, an experienced attorney can help.
