If a careless driver caused an accident, that person’s insurance company is responsible to pay for the medical treatment for the injuries you received in the accident.
You might think that it is best to give the hospital or doctor the insurance information of the careless driver that caused the accident. This seems logical, but in reality, it is extremely unlikely that the careless driver’s insurance company will pay anything at all. So what should you do if you do not have insurance? Sure, you might have a great case and settlement. You probably would win if you go to trial. The problem is that you need treatment now. Your health is your top priority.
The good news is that many lawyers have found health care providers that are willing to provide treatment without upfront payment if the attorney guarantees payment if the case settles. This is extremely helpful to individuals who need treatment now but cannot pay for it until the case settles. If your lawyer cannot guarantee payment, you may consider getting treatment at a local charity hospital or obtaining financial assistance from a local charity organization.
If you have been involved in an accident, it is important to get treatment immediately. This is the best thing you can do for your case and more importantly, your health.
