Paying Medical Bills After a Car Wreck in Georgia
If you have been injured in a car wreck, you may be asking yourself what you can do and who is supposed to pay your medical bills.
In general, your payment options will differ depending on the kind of wreck you were involved in and the type of insurance carried by you and the other party.
Bill Your Own Insurance
First, you will want to bill your health insurance. After your wreck, your doctors or hospital will offer to bill the other driver’s insurance company. If you have health insurance, do not let them do this. Instead, make sure that all of your medical bills are being sent to your health insurance company. Typically the victim of the accident assumes that the other party’s insurance will pay the medical bills, but this does not happen in personal injury cases.
The Other Party’s Responsibility
The wreck wasn’t your fault, so shouldn’t the other party be responsible for covering your medical bills? Yes. However, the other party will only pay your medical debt once the entire case is settled in your favor.
Even after the case is settled, you may still owe your hospital money for the treatment you had following your accident. Your attorney can help you with this and make sure that you are being treated fairly.
