How Do I Get My Medical Bills Paid After an Accident?

If you’ve been in and out of the hospital after suffering a serious injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the person responsible for injuring you. It’s very likely you haven’t been able to return to work yet, and for some very serious injury types, you may never be able to work again.

If you’ve been hurt, you’re going to be asking yourself: “How do I get my medical bills paid after an accident in California?” One effective way is to file a personal injury claim against the liable party.

Medical Expenses Following a Serious Accident

When you’ve been injured in an accident, one of the most expensive consequences of your injury is the monetary cost associated with your medical treatment. You could be receiving bills for the following medical expenses and more:

  • Hospital stays
  • Doctor visits
  • Medications
  • Surgeries
  • Physical therapy

Hopefully, you have health insurance that will pay for some of these costs, but it’s almost guaranteed that your insurance won’t cover everything. Who will pay the rest of your medical expenses for an accident you didn’t cause?

Filing a Personal Injury Claim

To recover your medical expenses after an accident in which another person was responsible for your injury, you can file a personal injury claim. Your claim could allow you to not only be compensated for the above medical costs, but for some additional damages. A few of those are listed below:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Missed wages
  • Future missed wages
  • Property damage
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
