One of the most common questions that many people ask while in hospital after an accident is; “Who will pay for medical bills?” determining who pays for medical bills during recovery can be a major concern for anyone that’s involved in a car accident.
In the state of Florida the easiest answer to find out who pays for medical bills after a car accident comes with PIP or a no-fault insurance benefit. Almost every auto insurance carrier will give you access to this benefit that you can access until you’re involved in an accident. The base rate of this PIP insurance coverage will pay up to $10,000 in medical expenses.
If you’re involved in a car accident and you are in the process of receiving medical attention, it’s always wise to go get checked out. Having some medical record of the incident is important to treating you in the future and checking the total impact of the accident on your life.
If you’ve not received any type of medical treatment before you seek compensation, this could lead to a gap in treatment or devaluation of your case. Making sure that you get yourself properly checked out for peace of mind as well as for evidence is important.
Keep in mind that this initial PIP insurance coverage will help to handle your early medical bills. If you need to access further compensation, you need to have the proper medical records in place for evidence and the help of an attorney to advocate for you in seeking further compensation. Working with a professional attorney to access further medical compensation can be an excellent way to make sure that you can be set up for your medical expenses in the future.
