I Received a Hospital Bill That Is Ridiculous for the Amount of Treatment That They Rendered to Me in the Emergency Room After My Accident. Is There Anything I Can Do About It?

Hospitals have in recent years been accused of charging significantly greater amounts than the normal customary charges for such services. This has been happening far too regularly to be ignored, and victims of car accidents are victimized again when they are taken, sometimes without even their consent, to an emergency room. Such excesses have included unnecessary tests that are very expensive, or tests never run but billed to the client.

The client, on occasion, is put on medical management protocols where there is no justification. In one such instance, a client received over $7,000.00 in scans, and heart monitoring charges of over $3,000.00 for a three-hour emergency room visit. The medical records showed she had no complaints of cervical and lumbar spine pain and she had no heart condition, high blood pressure or cuts. Her only complaint had been a blow to the head, after she was rendered unconscious and taken from the scene to the emergency room. X-rays at a fraction of the cost would have been sufficient.

An attorney that handles auto accdient cases can successfully protect you from such improper billing practices and preserve your right to maximium settlement to you. Review your hospital bill carefully and contest any hospital bills that are not reasonable. Call an Orange County personal injury attorney if you need to dispute a bill before your case is settled.

You were wonderful throughout my case. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain the process so that I could feel comfortable. When I was hurt, I really did not know where to turn and Suzanne was comforting and knowledgable. Thanks again for all you did.
