Who will pay my medical bills after a car accident?
When people come to see us, they have a lot of questions about the liable party in a car accident case. Typically, they’ve been in an accident. This is their first one. They don’t know what to do. The question that comes up is who’s going to pay the bills. Ironically, even though the accident was not your fault, you will pay the initial round. In Florida, you are required to have no fault insurance, also goes by Personal Injury Protection, PIP. That insurance will pay 80% of your medical bills. If you purchase additional insurance with your automobile insurance called medical payment insurance, you have to pay extra for it, but it will pick up the other 20%. Your auto insurance will pay potentially 100% of your bills.
That may sound backwards if someone else is responsible for the accident, but in Florida, that’s what pays first. After that, your health insurance, if you have it, will pick up these bills. At the end, if we resolve your case, either by settling before going to court or obtaining a verdict, the liable party will pay for your medical bills. At the end of the day, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will pay, but at the beginning of the case, you have to take care of it. For answers to these and other insurance related questions connected with auto accidents, give us a call.
Act as soon as you can. In Florida, the state law says that you have four years in which to file your car accident claim. That means you are going to be barred from receiving any sort of justice if you wait more than four years from the date of your car accident. Ideally, you make the call to our Nassau County car accident lawyer as soon as you possibly can after being involved in the accident. With a case that moves urgently, you reduce the risk of the evidence disappearing, witnesses forgetting what happened, and the insurance company having any room to undermine your case.
You may have preconceived notions about hiring a lawyer, such as how expensive they are and how you could handle a case by yourself without them. You are indeed allowed to represent yourself in a car accident claim but the chances of you getting the justice that you deserve in the fullest and fairest amount are slim. Our Nassau County car accident lawyer is successful because of his extensive knowledge in local and federal law regarding personal injury. Odds are you’re focused on your physical well-being, and caring for yourself and your family and trying to become an expert litigator while dealing with an injury is not a realistic possibility for you. Also, our lawyer work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay a penny unless we win your case.
