Who will Pay my Medical Bills after a Trip and Fall Accident?
Personal injury lawyers can help you determine who should pay your medical bills after a slip and fall injury. If you incur accident-related medical bills they become part of your claim. For example, if you pay medical bills out of pocket or if you have outstanding medical bills these are economic damages for which you can seek compensation from the tortfeasor.
In many cases homeowners and businesses carry liability insurance, known as med pay, which is responsible for paying medical bills incurred by a third party if the person is injured due to the property owners negligence. It is common for homeowners to carry $5,000 – $10,000 of med pay coverage.
Sometimes your medical bills will be paid by health insurance, workers compensation or through a government program such as Medicare or Medicaid. When a health insurer pays for accident-related medical treatment it may assert a lien on your personal injury case through a process known as subrogation. Health insurance liens are economic damages for which you can seek payment from the defendant at trial.
Don’t Wait to Call a Personal Injury Lawyer
Pennsylvania has a two year statute of limitations on negligence claims. You must settle your case or file a lawsuit within this period or you will lose your right to bring a lawsuit. However, you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to call a personal injury attorney. The sooner your lawyer can begin collecting evidence in support of your claim, the better your chances are of recovering compensation for your injuries.
