Sacramento Accident Attorney: Who Pays My Medical Bills If I Get Hurt In An Auto Accident?

Posted by attorney John Demas

Unfortunately, after a car accident medical bills can pile up fast. If the accident wasn't your fault, the person who caused the accident is ultimately responsible for paying all of the medical bills.

However, the responsible insurance company will usually not pay for medical bills, until you are done with your treatment and settle your case. Consider using your own health insurance to pay, or check to see if you have coverage through your auto insurance policy, called Med-pay. If you don't have health insurance or med-pay, some providers may treat you on a lien, which means they will wait until your case settles to get paid. Consider talking to an experienced accident attorney, to determine what is best for you.
