As a general rule, whether you have us get you a settlement from the insurance company or whether we get you a verdict from the insurance company, that settlement or verdict includes the future medical bills that are anticipated. Therefore, you are not going to have it left open for future medical bills because they will have been included in your settlement.

However, there are exceptions, and there are clients for whom I’ve been able to negotiate this. Additionally, if you have medical insurance and you’re back at work you’re always going to be able to use your medical insurance in the future so that you’re not going to need another source of compensation to cover your future bills.
