Obtaining Medical Care After a Car Accident

Many people are unsure of how to obtain medical care after an auto accident. That inexperience can be damaging both to your health and your pocketbook. Without medical documentation of your injury, the insurance company of the at-fault driver will likely deny your claim.

At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney in Bridgeport, Connecticut, our goal is to help you obtain the medical care you need and the compensation you deserve after a car accident. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your medical care options.

Who Will Pay My Medical Bills?

Connecticut is a “fault” insurance state. This means that if the other driver was at fault for the accident, his or her insurance company is responsible for paying for your losses, including medical bills. However, the insurance company will not pay your damages until your claim is resolved. That can take several months. In the meantime, you will need to find another way to pay your bills. Your options may include:

  • A personal medical insurance policy
  • Group medical coverage through your employer
  • Medicare or Medicaid

The most important thing to do after an auto accident is to obtain medical coverage and follow your doctor’s treatment plan for your recovery. If you fail to see a doctor or discontinue treatment, two things can happen:

  • You may be left with a chronic condition that can keep you from living your life to the fullest.
  • The insurance company of the at-fault driver may decline your personal injury claim.

What if I Am Uninsured?

If you do not have medical insurance, our lawyers can help you find a doctor who will provide your treatment in exchange for a lien on your personal injury settlement or verdict.
