If you were injured in an unexpected accident, you may be asking your Baltimore personal injury lawyer how you’ll pay your medical bills. Your attorney will discuss this topic with you in detail and may provide the following suggestions.
Use Your Own Insurance
If you have insurance from your employer, your spouse's employer, your parents, or insurance that you acquired personally, your Baltimore personal injury lawyer may recommend that you use this insurance first.
Car insurance coverage provides for the payment of medical bills if you were driving at the time of the accident and you were involved in the collision. Also, if you were a passenger at the time of the accident, the driver's insurance will provide coverage up to a certain limit for your injuries.
If you were injured while performing work, your Baltimore personal injury lawyer may recommend that you file a workers' compensation claim. Workers' compensation insurance may be able to cover your medical bills.
The defendant's liability insurance may provide coverage for your medical bills. However, an attorney from the Baltimore personal injury law firm that represents you can explain that these funds may not be provided until settlement instead of when you incur the bills. You may have to first pay out of your own funds and then be reimbursed.
