Question:

Who will pay for my medical bills after a car accident?

Answer:

People often ask me, “Who’s going to pay for my medical bills after an accident?” This is a very troubling question because many people today still don’t have health insurance, and as a result, if a crash happens and they’re injured, they do not have health insurance to pay for expenses for this kind of an injury. Oftentimes, the only recourse that a person without health insurance has is to go after the other person who hit them to get paid for medical expenses, wage loss expenses, as well as pain and suffering.Car Accident Medical BillsThe difficulty of those types of claims is simply that you have to wait until the very end of your case, after all of the medical care has been provided and you have been released from care from the doctor, in order to know that it’s safe for you to make a claim against the other party’s insurance, because it’s a one-time payment and after that, you’re barred from any future payment or recoveries. If you don’t have health insurance, or if your health insurance requires that you pay them back at the end of the case against a third-party, ultimately your best source of recovery is against the other party’s insurance, the party that caused the crash.
