Getting Compensated for Car Accident Medical Bills 

When you’re hurt in a car accident, your medical bills may be overwhelming. If you’re struggling to get coverage for your medical bills, you may need help getting the funds you’re due for your accident. 

At the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg, we know how important getting your medical bills covered after a car accident is. Here’s what you need to know about getting compensation.

Who Pays for My Medical Bills? 

Wisconsin is a fault-based state when one is dealing with insurance coverage after being in an auto accident. This means that it assumes the driver is at fault and the negligent driver is responsible for the injuries and damages the driver caused. 

If you were hurt by another person’s negligence, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit. But the person who injured you isn’t always financially liable. For example, a careless driver may have been on the clock and their employer is liable. Talk to your lawyer if you’re unsure who to seek compensation for your medical bills from. 

Your Medical Insurance and Filing a Claim

Since it can take a lot of time to receive compensation from the negligent party for the damages sustained, using your own insurance can provide some relief. 

You may also have a Wisconsin automobile insurance policy that covers medical bills. There is a minimum coverage amount depending on the coverage type and company. Check with your specific company for details on this, and be sure to speak with your lawyer before talking directly to the insurance company about your claim. 

Remember to keep all of the receipts for the medical treatments that you’ve received and your insurance has paid for. You may be liable for paying back the insurance companies for the payments they’ve covered after receiving compensation for the damages sustained in the vehicle accident. 

Receiving Compensation for Medical Bills 

Subrogation usually happens when the insurance company gets paid back for the medical bills they’ve covered from the negligent party. This is the same for the medical insurance companies that are paying the medical bills after the accident. 

Working with a law office can help to reduce the stress caused by working with all of these companies. Our team works for you to obtain the compensation you deserve from the liable parties for the medical expenses you’ve incurred. We will provide the evidence, receipts, and testimony from expert witnesses to prove you deserve this compensation for your damages. 

A settlement or a jury verdict will determine whether you receive compensation and how much you’ll receive for it. This depends on whether the liable party wants to settle outside of court or fight against the claims made against them.
