Frequently Asked Questions: Paying Medical Bills

Will the insurance company responsible for covering the party that caused my injury pay my medical bills as they are incurred?

car crash lawyer The vast majority of insurance companies will not automatically pay for medical expenses as they are incurred. This is probably the case for the company in charge of coverage for the tortfeasor (who is the individual, individuals, or company culpable for your injuries). Insurance companies do not do so for a variety of reasons. One of these is that they do not want to spend a great deal of money on medical bills, only to be faced with a demand at the time of final settlement from that they find to be excessive or unreasonable. Essentially, they do not want to pay for your medical costs and also have to cover the costs of defending a lawsuit. Another reason is that many insurance companies want to end or settle a claim with a single amount of money. This is why most liability insurance companies wait for a letter of demand from your New York car crash lawyer before attempting to pay you anything.

If I cannot pay my medical bills as they are incurred, will the medical professionals and facilities be willing to wait for payment?

If you have no immediate way of paying your medical bills, like medical insurance coverage or financial resources, then most doctors and hospitals will wait to be paid for their services until after the case is resolved via either settlement or court verdict. Make sure that you let them know as soon as possible that they will have to wait for payment.

How will the doctors and medical facilities end up getting paid?

Your New York car accident attorney will make sure that all of your bills will get paid. Most New York car accident lawyers have a policy of withholding money from your settlement or verdict to pay your medical bills. In addition, if you notify doctors or facilities that are treating you that you cannot pay right away, they will often require you to sign a subrogation or lien form. This form grants your New York car crash attorney the ability to hold back enough money to pay your medical bills directly from the settlement or verdict money.

If you have been injured in an automobile accident, contact the qualified New York car accident lawyers at Gersowitz, Libo & Korek to get the help you need to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
