The economy is rough, and finances are tough all over. So if you have been hurt through the negligent actions of another, it can be a real drain on your bank account to add medical expenses to an already tight budget. Fortunately, this is not the way medical bills are paid when you have been in an accident through no fault of your own. The party responsible for causing the wreck is held accountable for the damage done, including the damage to your personal property (your car) and also the personal injuries you have suffered. Rather than add worrying about paying medical bills to your list of stressors, partner with a qualified personal injury attorney for help.
The general way in which medical expenses are covered when an accident happens is like this:
- Immediate medical attention should be sought after the accident, if you have to pay a co-pay to your doctor, go ahead. Thereafter, advise your attorney who you have seen and alert the physician’s office to the fact your treatment is related to an auto accident.
- During the course of ongoing treatment, you will be invoiced by the facility, and all copies of bills you receive should be turned over to your attorney.
- Once treatment concludes, you will have a final bill. That final bill is a piece of evidence in your case, and will be presented to the other side for repayment. The expenses for medical care received are paid out of the settlement, or jury award you receive for your case. In many instances we are able to negotiate a lower amount with the treating physician which results in a compensation to you that is full and complete.
