Most Common Expenses & Costs Incurred After An Accident

After an accident, there are likely to be expenses that you could be held responsible for. The Nicoletti Law Firm is a strong believer that you should not be solely responsible for those expenses, especially when you have been involved in an accident that is not your fault. The other party who caused the accident should be held liable. Here are some common expenses that you may incur after an accident:

Medical Bills

Medical bills are the most common type of expense incurred after an accident. These bills can be numerous and voluminous. You should absolutely not be obligated to pay for those medical bills when another caused an accident. Those bills should be the responsibility of the other party and the insurance company.

Some common medical expenses include:

- Ambulance Costs

- Doctor's Appointments

- Medical Consultations

- Hospital & Emergency Room Bills

- In-Home Care

- Medical Supplies

- Physical Therapy

If you attend a medical provider after an accident, contact us immediately so we can help you to obtain compensation to cover that bill.

Rental Car

Rental Coverage is not required on Florida car insurance policies. Moreover, the rental car coverage may not even fully cover the cost of the rental car. You should not have to pay for the cost of a rental car, nor should you have to pay the difference between the insurance coverage and the cost of the rental. That rental car cost should fall on the other party who caused the accident.

Property Damage

In Florida, you are only required to carry $10,000 in liability coverage. Sometimes, that $10,000 is not enough to cover the damage to your vehicle. If your vehicle is considered to be a total loss, the insurance company will issue you a check for the value of the vehicle if there is appropriate coverage. However, you may have a gap in value that you have to pay, or you may have to incur the costs of obtaining a new vehicle. The expense to obtain a new vehicle or to pay the difference that you owe on your previous vehicle should not fall on your shoulders.

Lost Wages

After an accident, you may not be able to work. Often times, individuals have to miss work immediately after the accident to recover. They may also have to miss work for doctor’s appointments following the accident. You should not have to miss out on wages due to the negligence of another.


Accident victims often have to incur travel costs in order to attend doctor’s appointments and other meetings in relation to the accident. You should not have to pay for fuel and travel expenses related to the accident.
