If you have been injured as a result of an accident, you need to receive adequate medical attention as soon as possible. If you do not, it may be more difficult to prove your injuries were a result of your accident.
Your payments for medical care will be determined on the coverage offered in your insurance policy. If you are not at fault, your expenses will be paid by the at fault driver’s liability coverage.
You may also seek payment from:
- Uninsured motorist coverage, if you have this policy and were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver
- Medical payments coverage
- Your health insurance policy
As you are trying to receive reimbursement for your expenses, remember that there is a possibility to get a pushback on these expenses. It is important for you to keep track of all of your documentation and receipts. If you continue to have trouble getting your medical expenses covered, contact a personal injury attorney for help.
Our attorneys have many years of experience working with insurance companies to get the highest possible settlement amounts for our clients to compensate for personal injuries, property damage, pain and suffering, and mental distress.
