How Car Accident Medical Expenses Are Paid

A common question you may have after being involved in a serious car accident that involves injuries is how to go about paying for medical expense.

First, look to see if your own auto policy has auto medical payments coverage. If you have this coverage, your insurance company will pay your medical bills up the limit in the policy and then recover the amount from the insurance company of the at fault driver.

You should also look into health care coverage. If you have health care coverage, a similar process will occur. Your health care insurer will pay your medical bills while you are treating with your doctors. At the time of settlement, your attorney will recover your medical bills that were incurred because of the accident from the insurance company of the at fault driver.
