Who is Going to Pay for My Medical Care?
There are many possible answers to this question. For example, if you have health insurance, you may be able to submit your medical bills to your health insurance company. Also, if you purchased “medpay insurance” from your car insurance company, it will cover the cost of your medical bills should you be in an accident – regardless of whether you were at fault in the accident.
If you do not have health insurance or medpay, no one will pay for your medical bills. You will have to look to a settlement of your claim to pay for these bills.
Many health providers will agree to wait to get paid if you sign a lien. By signing a lien, you authorize Ginsberg Law Offices, as your lawyer, to deduct from your portion of a settlement funds equal to you unpaid medical bills and to send this money to your doctor.
Similarly, no one will pay to reimburse you for wages lost as a result of your accident. (If you had purchased lost wage reimbursement coverage from your insurance company, it will pay some or all of your lost wages). You will have to wait until your case settles.
As your lawyer, we will review your insurance coverage and explain to you what type of coverage you have. If your coverage was not thorough, we will suggest changes for the future.
