You know how you are going to pay your bills, but what’s the best way to stay on top of them so that nothing falls through the cracks? The worst-case scenario is that your bills go to collections – which can be detrimental to your credit rating.
When you consult with your personal injury attorney, they will guide you through the process.
Some best practices are:
- Keep track of all of your bills and send a copy to your attorney as soon as you can
- Ensure that your attorney is aware of the doctors you are visiting and how you are progressing in your recovery
- Be proactive—communicate with your medical providers and tell them that you were in an accident and are waiting for the settlement to handle the bills
- These are just a few tips. Your lawyer will provide additional guidance and help you get through this difficult time.
