How to Pay Your Medical Bills After a Personal Injury Accident

loss-of-ConsortiumIf you’ve been injured in an accident, usually one of the first concerns that come to mind is whether you will be able to pay for the medical bills to treat your injury. The payment of medical bills can be quite complicated if you can’t pay immediately as they are incurred. There is also a waiting game involved, because you and your Orange County personal injury lawyer will have to wait until after the settlement or court verdict to actually pay the bills.

First, rest assured: many doctors and medical facilities are willing to wait to get paid for medical services until after your case is resolved, either through settlement or a court verdict. That means you can get treated for your injury immediately, even if you’re not able to pay for the medical bills on the spot. Just make sure that you notify your medical providers, as soon as possible and early in the process, that you do not have insurance or the ability to pay for medical bills as they are incurred.

Once a settlement or court verdict is reached, your Orange County personal injury lawyer will withhold your money in order to pay the doctors or medical facilities for the medical bills that you have incurred. Often, you will have to sign a subrogation or lien form with your doctor or medical facility that gives your lawyer permission to withhold enough money to directly pay them from your insurance settlement.

The insurance company for the person, persons, or company that caused your injury will usually have a policy of not paying your medical bills as they are incurred. This is because insurance companies are reluctant to pay a huge amount for your medical bills as they are incurred and then be faced later on with a huge, unreasonable final monetary demand at settlement. (Usually, an unreasonable final settlement amount leads to a lawsuit, which can be extremely costly to defend.)

In addition, insurance companies do not pay medical bills as they are incurred because they prefer to pay one lump sum. Insurance companies will thus wait until your Orange County personal injury lawyer sends them a letter of demand. That’s when the insurance company will try to settle everything with one payment.

Paying for treatments for your injuries can be stressful, especially if you’re not able to pay the medical bills immediately as they are incurred.

I’ve never used an attorney for an auto claim before, but I have to say that this law firm was an exceptional first experience. From the moment I contacted them to get more info on how they could help me, they have been extremely helpful and super responsive. I communicated with Basim Habbas throughout the process, who did an awesome job of keeping me informed and updated. He answered all of my questions and addressed any concerns I had, and even made it easy to communicate via text - all of which I thoroughly appreciate! The law firm took care of every single aspect of this claim for me - I didn’t have to do anything besides provide the basic info and stay in touch with them. I highly recommend and advise anyone who’s involved with an accident or personal injury claim to use them! They are trustworthy, reliable, and get the job DONE.Thank you guys for everything you did for me, I sincerely appreciate your more

I was involved in a major car accident in 2015 and was referred to this law firm by an acquaintance. Samer and his team handled my case for over 3 years. During this time, I felt at ease knowing that I was in good hands. I was able to move on with my life and let my attorney’s office handle the rest. Samer and his team educated me on what to expect in the process and guided me through every step of the way until the settlement. They were always professional and quick to respond to my requests and worked tirelessly to get the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend this law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel on auto accidents. A huge thank you to Samer, Corbin, Mike and the rest of the team!read more
