Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to compensation for any of the following expenses:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Probable loss of wages in the future
- Loss of relationship with your spouse
- Other out-of-pocket expenses due to your injuries
- Punitive damages (in some cases)
If the other driver is at fault and has liability insurance, you may have the right to be compensated for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, among other things. If the at-fault driver does not have insurance, you may be entitled to be compensated from your own insurance company if you purchased Uninsured Motorist Insurance Coverage.
Getting Your Medical Bills Paid After Your Accident
Generally, you pay for your medical bills upfront, and then are reimbursed for them after your accident case has been settled. However, if you have Medical Payments Coverage under your insurance policy, you may be able to pay your medical bills as they are due by making a claim against your own coverage. Also, if you have health insurance, your medical bills may be paid by your health insurance company.
