Video Summary

  • If someone else caused the accident, the negligent party and their insurance company may be responsible for paying the medical bills, provided they have insurance coverage or sufficient funds.
  • In the meantime, the first source to turn to for partial payment of medical bills is usually your own health insurance, whether it's private or public (e.g., Medicare or Medicaid).
  • In some cases, there may be additional coverage options such as Med Pay or PIP, depending on the state and the type of insurance policy.
  • Consulting an experienced accident or injury attorney is essential to explore all potential sources of recovery for medical bills, as they can become costly, especially if there's a loss of income due to the injuries.
