Who Pays Your Medical Expenses After An Auto Accident?

Guidance O Medical Expenses After Car Accident Injuries

Doctor and hospital bills can pile up quickly from any type of serious auto accident, and it is common for insurance payments to take time to come through — especially if you do not get counsel and representation from an experienced Oklahoma car accident lawyer early in the process.

The question of who pays for car accident medical expenses if another driver caused the crash is a pressing one for many victims and their families. Most employer-provided health insurance policies exclude nonwork-related accidents from coverage, and tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills can accumulate within weeks for serious head, brain, back and spinal injuries, broken bones and other outcomes requiring diagnostic tests and surgical procedures.
