March 13, 2013 | Personal Injury

Paying medical bills is a huge concern for people who have been injured in an accident. A Fairfield County personal injury lawyer can assist you in determining how to ensure that all of your bills get paid in a timely manner.

Different Ways to Pay Medical Bills

There are many different ways that you can cover off your medical expenses. Generally, if you have been injured in an accident, the bills will be paid using one or more of the following options:

  • Health insurance. Health insurance as provided by your employer that you purchased on your own, from your spouse’s employment benefits package, or from your parents’ employment benefits package (if you are underage and covered by their plan) can cover your medical costs.
  • Workers’ compensation insurance. If you were on the job when the injury occurred, workers’ compensation insurance can pay the bills.
  • Medical payments insurance coverage. This coverage may come from your automobile policy (if you were driving the vehicle and were injured in a collision) or from the driver’s automobile policy (if you were a passenger in the vehicle).
  • Your own savings. If you don’t have insurance and are able to afford to pay the medical bills, you can pay the bills outright.
  • Liability insurance coverage. Liability insurance coverage for the person, persons, or company that caused your injuries (though this is usually paid at the time of settlement instead of when you incur medical costs).

These are just a few examples. There are other possible ways to make sure your medical bills get paid, which a Fairfield County personal injury lawyer can discuss with you in detail.
