Medical Bills after a Car Crash

It is easy to feel overwhelmed when you and your family are confronted with the financial aspect of a serious accident, not to mention the physical pain you’re experiencing. Meeting deductibles and dealing with your own insurance carrier is frustrating enough – why put up with it when someone else is to blame.

Whether you need back surgery or a loved one requires extensive physical therapy, by pursuing an injury claim or lawsuit you can hold the responsible party accountable and make them pay their fair share.

What About the Medical Bills You Have Now?

Recovering compensation after a car accident is intended to make you financially whole for all the damages related to your accident. Some claims are resolved within weeks while others could take longer depending on the complexity of the case. In the meantime, you may be wondering how you will get your medical bills paid immediately following your accident.

One option is for your medical expenses to be covered by your health insurance policy. However, most health insurance policies have clauses requiring reimbursement if you recover against a third-party either through an agreement or at trial.

It may also be possible to arrange a deferred payment plan with your medical provider so you can continue treatment while you wait for your claim to be resolved. this is something an attorney can assist you with in addition to negotiating down what you’re expected to pay.

Should I Settle to Get My Bills Paid?

The financial burdens after a car accident make it tempting to quickly settle your claim with the insurance company. But, you should not accept an offer before you know the full extent of your injuries. You may need additional care down the line, and accepting too quickly may leave you stuck with the bill. Remember that insurance companies try to offer you the least amount possible for your claim because paying out less means more profits for them.

Therefore, it’s always best to speak with a personal injury lawyer before accepting an offer to ensure that you understand your rights and are being offered what’s fair.
