What will a day in the hospital really cost you?

You get injured in a car accident when someone else runs you off the road and into the guardrail. It's not your fault, but you are still seriously hurt. You get rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment, and then you have a lengthy stay ahead of you.

As soon as you are stable, you start thinking about the serious financial ramifications. You want to know what this incident is going to cost and how to seek compensation.

Of course, every injury case is unique. Your costs depend on the type of injury you suffered, the type of care you need and many other factors.

That said, you can look at some averages to see how much it costs to stay in the hospital. This helps to give you the base costs, and the rest of your treatment may put additional bills on top of that. In California, the average costs for one day are as follows:

  • At a nonprofit hospital: $3,500 per day.
  • At a for-profit hospital: $2,140 per day.
  • At a government hospital, either at the state or local level: $2,680 per day.

You may be interested in knowing how California stacks up against the overall averages in the United States. After all, costs differ drastically from one state to the next. The national averages are:

  • At a nonprofit hospital: $2,289 per day.
  • At a for-profit hospital: $1,791 per day.
  • At a government hospital, either at the state or local level: $1,878 per day.

As you can see, California tends to be one of the most expensive states. Make sure you understand your legal rights to seek out compensation following an injurious car accident.
