Quoting Man. Bear. Pig.:" Wow that's really good! How can they gauge medical bills for further in the future? Just bigger settlement/lifetime medical? I honestly dont know."
Yeah they give a certain amount to cover possible future issues. Because even with stuff it could be 20 years down the road you have issues and it could just be from life or that, no one will ever know the exact cause ya know what I mean? My mom had a work injury, and had to have back surgery for it, well come to find out she also has a degenerative disease so the injury probably just aggravated that. After a certain period, it is more of just a "wear and tear" injury usually than directly linked to an accident. Unless it's something like a severely broken bone that takes screws or something and there's issues with that.
