Medical expenses from an accident can include ambulance service, doctors, hospitals, MRIs and other scans, and months of medical care, more scans, surgery, and physical therapy.

How am I getting my medical bills paid after an accident?
Often, the most important question people come in with is: How am I getting my medical bills paid? Some people have insurance, and one of the problems with insurance is not all doctors take all types of insurance.
No Coverage or Issues with Medicaid or Medicare Coverage
We see that a lot with Medicaid and Medicare, many medical facilities won´t take them, so we try to clients find facilities that will take the insurance they have. If they don´t have any insurance (if they don´t have medical insurance), we also try to help them find somebody who would treat them because they knew the treatment regardless of whether there is going to be a third party case and regardless of whether they have insurance.
Right of Subjugation in NJ
Insurance is a big issue regarding how those get paid and is a big issue when the case resolves. A lot of health insurance contracts the right of subjugation, meaning that if they make a payment for a medical bill, they´ll expect to get paid back from the recovery regardless of the amount of recovery.
What if my recovery is less than the settlement amount of my case?
If the recovery is not high and the medical bill is higher than recovery, it could be problematic. We don´t leave our clients hanging out there when the case is done; we are making sure that they don´t have an obligation to pay back everything that the insurance companies ask. We will continue to fight for our clients; we´ll continue to represent their interests to maximize their recovery.
No-Fault Insurance Laws in New Jersey
No-fault insurance means that your automobile insurer will pay some or all of your medical bills if you get into a car accident, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. In some “no-fault” states, there is a limit to what your own automobile insurance company will pay.
A common mistake or misunderstanding assumed by the drivers in and across Mercer County, NJ, assumes that the car insurer for the other car will pay their medical bills, especially if they were at fault for the accident. This is no longer the case in New Jersey. The laws have changed, and it is important to enlist the assistance of a quality Personal Injury Attorney to help guide you through the process.
