After a personal injury accident, some of the resulting injuries could require surgery. Did you know that your treatment could potentially affect the value of your injury claim?
Some of the Most Common Questions We Receive:
Will I get paid more on my case if I have the surgery recommended for me by my doctor? Yes, it is possible that you get paid more for your injury case if you agree to have the surgery that your doctor recommended. The potential increased payout is caused by the additional medical costs.
How much will I get paid? How much will my case be settled for? The total amount that you will get paid (what your case will settle for) will be based on the details surrounding your claim. Although your payout could increase if you agree to get the recommended surgery, there are many other factors that also affect the value of your claim that should be considered.
How much more money will I get if I have surgery for the injuries I suffered in my accident? You can expect the cost of the surgery to be added to your claim’s value, although the value added might be higher than the surgery cost once other factors are taken into account.
The medical procedures that you have play an important role in the value of your injury case. If you were injured in an Uber/Lyft accident, workplace accident, slip and fall accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, car accident, or any other type of personal injury accident, your doctor might recommend surgery to ensure the best physical recovery. However, having surgery could also increase your financial recovery for your injury claim.

Understanding How Case Value Is Determined
There is no predetermined value for personal injury accidents. The value of your personal injury case – whether it involves a car accident, rideshare accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, or workplace accident – will always be based on the facts.
Some of the details that will be taken into consideration to determine the value of your injury claim include the following:
Each of the points listed above is key in determining the value of your injury claim. However, the injuries suffered and the medical care needed to treat injuries sustained in the accident is among the most important details to be considered. This is because medical care is very expensive. Different procedures, like hip surgery, ankle surgery, shoulder surgery, spine surgery, and knee surgery, for example, could leave victims with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. In cases with severe injuries, surgery to treat said injuries is absolutely necessary. However, there are other cases in which surgery is optional (i.e., to relieve pain or to increase quality of life, for example); in these cases, affected parties could be faced with the difficult decision of agreeing to or refusing a surgery knowing that their decision could potentially affect the value of their injury claim.
