How Do I Get My Medical Bills Paid after an Accident?

When you’re injured, getting the money you need for your recovery after an accident can be tough. You’re hurt, and the responsible party likely doesn’t want to pay for your injuries.

That leaves many injury victims asking, “How do I get my medical bills paid after an accident?” Fortunately, a lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you with the answers you need for your accident. If you’re struggling to get your bills covered, reach out for the guidance you need during your injury claim.

Getting a Settlement from Your Insurance Company

First, you may be able to avoid an injury claim if you can contact your insurance company about the accident. For example, you may have been involved in a car accident that left you seriously injured.

However, remember that you’re dealing with a for-profit company. Their investors expect a profit, so they may put those profits over your recovery. As such, they may offer you less than what you’re owed. Speak to your lawyer about any doubts you have about your injury claim when you’re trying to recover.

To seek out the full settlement you deserve, contact the company about your claim as soon as possible, but take care on what information you provide. Your injury lawyer can help guide you through a settlement and to the funds you need for your medical bills.

Your Accident Lawsuit

Unfortunately, dealing with the insurance company may not get you the response you want or need for your claim. Instead, you may need to file a claim against the responsible party.

Keep in mind that you’ll only have three years to make that decision, so you may need to speak to your attorney now about taking action and preparing to file your accident claim.

You’ll also need to consider that you could be given part of the fault for the accident. For example, they may claim you were distracted, so you didn’t stop the accident even though you should have had the power to do so. They may claim that you were 20 percent at fault, which means you’ll only receive 80 percent of the compensation you deserve. Keep this in mind as you and your lawyer work together.
