How Do I Get My Medical Bills Paid After an Accident?
A serious accident is rarely just painful. You’re also dealing with high costs related to the incident, especially if you need medical treatment. This can be expensive, and when you’re not the one who caused the accident, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering.
You may be asking, then, “How do I get my medical bills paid after an accident?” You’ll first need to contact a lawyer from the Colley Firm, PC. Our team will review your case and fight for the compensation and justice you deserve. No matter how much your medical bills are, you deserve to have your medical expenses paid if you weren’t at fault. We’ll help get you there.
Find the Responsible Party
Who’s responsible for what happened to you? That’s the person who should cover your medical bills. It could have been a reckless driver, a careless property owner, an inattentive dog owner, a negligent doctor—the list goes on.
Sometimes, though, the person who was present at the time of your accident isn’t the only person who should be held accountable for your medical bills and other expenses. For example, if a driver slammed into you in an intersection but only because the stoplight was malfunctioning, the local government road authority or even the manufacturer of the light could be liable.
File a Claim
In many types of personal injury cases, you’ll end up filing your claim with the responsible party’s insurer. Whether it’s an auto accident, medical malpractice, or a premises liability case, you’re likely going to file a claim with an insurance company to get your medical bills covered.
Unfortunately, while we expect them to be on our sides, insurers are for-profit businesses—they don’t want to compensate you. Keep this in mind and be sure to speak with your lawyer about what your case is worth before you accept a settlement offer.
In cases when the insurer refuses to play fair, you and your attorney may need to head to court to get what you’re owed. In addition to fighting for what you’re owed, your lawyer can disprove accusations that you were partially at fault, further protecting your claim
