I recently had a client come into my office and ask me about who’s going to pay for all the medical expenses and bills that she’s going to start receiving as a result of her accident because she went to the emergency room and followed up with her doctor after the crash.
What’s important to know about medical bills following a car accident is that first off, if you have health insurance, your health insurance is intended to pay for these healthcare costs, so use your healthcare insurance to cover the medical bills after an accident.
However, not everybody has health insurance, so if you do go to the emergency room, that hospital is going to have a medical lien on any recovery – if you recover – in the future. Additionally, there are a lot of doctors who understand that the defendant and the defendant insurance company will pay these medical expenses sometime in the future, once the case is resolved.
A lot of these doctors, thankfully, will hold on to these bills and wait until the claim gets settled or resolved, and then they will wait to get compensated.
It’s extremely important, that you do seek any medical treatment that you believe is reasonable and necessary to care for your injuries following a car accident. We will then make arrangements with those doctors on how they will get paid, but first and foremost, it’s important to go seek that medical treatment for the injuries you received.
