One of the greatest fears car accident victims have about the aftermath of their crash is how their medical bills will get paid. Even a simple fender-bender can cause long-term injuries such as whiplash, chronic back pain, or even brain damage.
Unfortunately, these injuries can also bring a mountain of medical bills along with them. A recent study from 2013 found that the average cost for a bodily injury claim was $15,443. The more severe the injury, the higher the cost tends to be.
Medical Bills: How We Can Help
Thankfully, the experienced lawyers at The Advocates Law can help defer medical bills after your accident. We will make sure your bills do not fall into collections. We will coordinate with your own health insurance or Medicare so that your PIP or ‘Medical Payment’ (MedPay) coverage will pay your bills until the at-fault party’s insurance reimburses you for your co-pays and deductibles.
If you are without insurance or simply unable to pay for medical treatment after your car accident, The Advocates Law will help connect you with a network of medical providers who will make financial arrangement with you until you reach a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company.
The Advocates Law has worked with local medical providers and clinics to help reduce the bills for thousands of clients. We can help you not only prevent any unpaid medical bills from adversely damaging your credit, but we can also negotiate with doctors on your behalf to lower the amount you will have payout of your settlement. Here at The Advocates Law, we put our clients’ needs before anything else. We’ll do everything in our power to help you recover from your accident, both physically and financially.
