Many hospitals and healthcare providers will defer your medical bills until the conclusion of your personal injury claim if you are being represented by a reputable Newark car accident attorney. However, there may still be bills that you absolutely cannot put off.
There are a variety of ways you can pay these bills. If you are in a situation where you must pay your bills off immediately, you should consult your Newark car accident attorney about the best course of action, and he will probably recommend one of the following options.
One possible source of immediate relief is your personal insurance. This includes insurance that you purchased personally or are receiving from your employer. You may even have some medical coverage from your automobile insurance (depending on your policy).
Also, you should check whether or not you are covered by anyone else’s insurance. Depending on your age and circumstances, you might be covered by your parents’ or your spouse’s insurance. You might also be able to seek relief from workers’ compensation if your accident occurred while you were working.
Finally, there is always the option of paying for your expenses out-of-pocket.
Before you start paying off your bills, discuss your options with your personal injury attorney and listen to his recommendations. Keep in mind that making concurrent claims with other insurance companies may affect your current case.
An experienced Newark car accident attorney will be familiar with all parts of the claims process, and his expertise can benefit you even outside the courtroom. To schedule a free initial consultation with Dan T. Matrafajlo, simply call (908) 248-4404.
