If you’ve ever been in an accident, you know firsthand how the payments usually go. Getting reimbursed isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do with your personal injury case, but I have a few tips to make the process run more smoothly.
There’s a number of things you need to have in order when sorting out the bills being paid from your car accident. Sure, it all may sound pretty simple and straightforward at first, but it’s suprising how many attorneys don’t share this on their website.
When you’ve been in the unfortunate position of a car crash, if you have your own health insurance you must absolutely be submitting your bills to that policy.
The second thing is that you want to take note of your own insurance policy. The reason I say this is because of a secret little piece of your policy (if you have it) is the opportunity for med pay.

Now here’s the good news. The insurance company is liable for the average Joe or Jane that smashed into your car, and will be required to pay their bills if they’re found to be liable.
