MEDICAL BILLS OWED AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT
It’s summer and the extra time we get with our kids and family is so fun. It’s a time where many families take vacations and extended car trips. Due to this vacation time and more time on the road, our office sees a rise in the number of car wreck cases we are asked to help people with. This is an area of law that Kelli Haas has been practicing for over 24 years. Because of that experience, we wanted to remind you of a few things you can do to help yourself if you are in an unfortunate automobile accident.
If you have been in a car accident and the accident was the other driver’s fault, you should contact an attorney to recover for your injuries. We have helped many people recover money for car accidents. One thing to think about is how your medical bills will be paid after a car accident.
There are normally a few ways medical bills get paid. Either through your health insurance, your car insurance, the at fault driver’s car insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and self-payment plans. There are some strategies to reduce medical bills that you might owe. We have had success on reducing medical bills owed after a car accident. For instance, if Medicare pays any of your medical bills, or if you owe a medical provider directly, we can negotiate that those bills be reduced. There are also benefits to having one source pay a medical bill over another source if you are going to pursue a claim for injuries you received in the car accident.
Being involved in a car accident is hard enough. You shouldn’t have to worry about medical bills that you incurred because somebody else was negligent. Contact Kelli Haas directly at (615) 567-7304 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you figure it out. In the meantime, have a great, fun summer and enjoy every second.
