Traumatic Injury While Traveling, Who Pays?

07/12/2013 // Carson, CA, USA // LifeCare123 // Eva Hvingelby // (press release)

Many private insurance companies do not pay for care that occurs outside of your home country. Travel insurance can bridge this gap, and policies are available that focus on a variety of medical needs or emergencies you may face. It’s important to read the small print when you purchase insurance. Remember that if you are seriously injured or ill, your best option may be to leave the country you are visiting and receive treatment at home. Look for a policy that will cover the expense of a medical transport airline that has a doctor and nurse on board, to fly you home.

If you are the victim of a traumatic accident, there are secondary effects such as emotional distress or extensive rehabilitation that may not be covered. Depending on the nature of your injury, legal services can help you identify additional resources that will pay for the long term and unexpected costs of your recovery.
