If your settlement check is for pain and suffering from the at fault driver's insurance company... This settlement does not include medical expenses. You have a separate claim for medical bills called your no-fault claim. This typically comes from your own (but there is a whole scheme set up for determining who pays your no fault benefits) but please be aware there is a 1 yr time limit for making this claim in addition to one yr to get any bill paid from the date you incurr it. I would urge you to talk with a lawyer who specializes in no-fault automobile insurance claims.Ask a similar question
