If you don’t have medical insurance and you’re in an accident, if the other party is ultimately determined to be liable to you for your injuries, then they would also be responsible to pay as part of the settlement for any medical bills that you have. Of course that wouldn’t happen until the end of the case, which may be sometime later on. So in the meantime, there would be a couple things to be looked at.
If you’re in a car accident and you’re a passenger, then the insurance of the car that you were in might sooner pay for your medical bills. Another issue is to contact the medical providers that are asking you to pay medical bills, speak with them. Your attorney can help you with that. Ask them to lower the amount that they are seeking, which they often do. Another thing which would be very important is to ask them to not require you to pay until this case is finished. Let them know there is a case, it’s pending, and most often, they will agree to not require payment until the end of the case and get the payment from the proceeds that are recovered. And this is something an attorney can help you with so you should definitely contact an attorney if you’re in that situation.
