Personal Injuries are Painful and Costly
If you were injured at Walmart, you may have ended up going to the hospital by ambulance or at least making a trip to the ER. Doctor’s bills, hospital tabs, and prescription charges begin to mount. You may have even had surgery or been told you may need one in the future. Physical therapy is a common equation in the mix too.
The fact is that medical injuries cost money. So do emotional issues that often develop after an injury. Other expenses add up too like being off work, babysitting fees while you go to your medical appointments, paying for a way to get to the appointments if your injury doesn’t allow you to drive, a myriad of other costs can easily be racked up.
