22 Oct WILL INSURANCE COVER TRANSPORTATION COSTS AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?
Posted By Gruenberg Kelly Della || 22-Oct-2019
When discussing the damages that result from a car accident, the medical implications are generally the most urgent. Your health is the most important thing to focus on, and the aim of pursuing a case should be recovering from your injuries.
However, car accidents impact nearly every aspect of a victim’s life, and the financial repercussions of a collision include more than medical bills. An expense that can result from a car accident is the added cost of transportation — if the car is totaled or requires repairs after an accident, a victim will need to rely on alternative forms of getting around. Public transportation, rideshare services, or using a rental car costs money, and is an expense that the victim would not have to pay if they were not involved in the collision. Additionally, an injury victim may need to travel more than usual to get to and from medical appointments, a mechanic, or an attorney’s office.
If you were injured in a car accident and need to pay for an alternative form of transportation, you may be wondering how you are going to afford those costs. Car insurance should cover medical bills, but does insurance coverage account for the peripheral costs that result from a collision?
Your coverage will depend on your insurance policy, but as an injury victim you are entitled to coverage of all the damages you sustained in a car accident. Your insurance company may attempt to avoid paying you the full amount of benefits you are entitled to, and exclude the cost of transportation from your settlement.
