Whether or not you are responsible for medical bills depends on what selections you made on your car insurance.  If you chose to have your medical insurance pay for the costs of care, instead of choosing the personal injury protection option, you may be responsible for reimbursing your medical insurance.

Generally speaking, when you are in an automobile accident your medical bills are payable through either your auto insurance policy or the auto insurance policy of the driver of the vehicle you were in if you do not have your own automobile insurance. Call your attorney and find out whether your medical bills were submitted to the appropriate insurance company.

Personal Injury
Have you been injured in accident that was someone else's fault? Has a doctor's mistake caused long-term health issues? Have you been hurt by a defective product? Under state personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation if you are hurt as a result of another person or company's negligent, reckless or deliberate actions. Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
