Healthcare Bills Following a Personal Injury
When you suffer a personal injury, the first priority has to be getting medical assistance. However, there are concerns that people have when an ambulance is called at the scene of the injury. For example, what if the facility you are brought to or the doctor who examines you is not in network? This can result in a lot of extra expense, especially if you want to do your follow up with the same doctor or facility.
There is good news, however. Compensation for personal injury settlements should include coverage for your medical expenses regardless of whether you saw a doctor who was in network or not. In fact, there is a precedent for your expenses being covered, even if you decline to use your health insurance. You just have to be sure to get a settlement or win the case. Otherwise, you will be the one who is responsible for the medical bills that add up.
Proving fault or negligence is key when it comes to personal injury cases, so you want an experienced attorney on your side.
