To recover past medical expenses, the injured must prove that the medical services were attributable to the accident; that they were necessary, and that the charges were reasonable. See Calhoun v. Hildebrandt, (1964) 230 Cal. App. 2d 70, 73. This rule has been well settled in California, in that the cost alone of medical treatment does not govern the recovery of such expenses and that it must also be shown that the services were attributable tot he accident, that they were necessary and reasonable. See Gimbel v. Laramie, (1960) 181 Cal. App. 2d 77, 81.
