Who Is Going To Pay For My Medical Bills?
The first concern after a serious accidental injury is nearly always the well-being of the injured person. Top-notch medical treatment and care are essential. The second concern — and very important in support of the first one — is the financial end of things. Who will take responsibility for expenses after an accident, and how do you tap into those resources? How will your medical bills be paid when you have been injured in an accident such as the following?
This is a very good question, and one of the most powerful motivators reminding people of the importance of contacting an experienced attorney as soon as possible. A detailed consultation with one of the personal injury lawyers at Harris Powers & Cunningham can get you started finding answers to this key question.
Depending on the particulars of your situation, answers may include one or more of these factors:
- If you have health insurance, your health care provider is likely to pay initially. That insurer is also likely to expect to be reimbursed from any proceeds of a personal injury claim. Talk to an attorney about the impact of a health care provider lien on your personal injury claim or lawsuit proceeds, and how that can impact the final disbursement of funds when your injury claim or lawsuit is settled.
- If you have no health insurance, or inadequate health insurance, a skilled personal injury lawyer may be able to get bill collectors to wait until your case is resolved to be paid.
- Naturally, you are, no doubt, concerned about continuity of care as you recover from a serious or catastrophic accident. Harris Powers & Cunningham can help you address this issue by negotiating with your doctors, hospital, medical clinic or therapists. Once they understand how your case is likely to proceed, they are likely to work with you. Your stress level can become much more manageable once you know you will still be able to see your doctor, get needed treatments and so on.
A knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney can often help you continue to have access to services that you need while your injury claim or lawsuit is underway.
