Who Pays My Medical Expenses After a Car Accident?
Watch this video by dedicated Buffalo injury attorney Timothy Hiller, Esq. as he explains who pays medical expenses after a car accident.
Clients will often ask me who pays for their medical expenses after they’re injured. And this is typically the number one thing on clients’ minds. I’ve been in a car accident, I’m injured, medical care is very expensive, I may or may not need surgery. How am I going to pay for this?
Well, the first thing you need to know is that for most accidents in New York State, you can get covered up to $50,000 in medical care through the no-fault system. But unfortunately, the system is very complex and very difficult for non-lawyers to navigate. And again, in the no-fault system, just as with your personal injury claim, the insurance companies have adjusters for one reason, and that’s to deny your no-fault claim and to stop paying your medical benefits.
So you need an attorney who knows how to file a no-fault application correctly, how to dispute unfair denials of your no-fault benefits, and how to get on the phone with the no-fault adjuster and get you the medical care that you need right away.
If you decide to go it alone, you’re going to be overwhelmed with paperwork, you’re going to get denied, and you’re not going to know what to do. Unfortunately, I’ve seen this happen before, you don’t get the care that you ultimately need to recover.
