Handling Your Medical Bills After a Florida Auto Accident

Based on information from the Florida Highway safety and motor vehicles website, there were over 139,970 injury cases that took place in the year 2020 alone. Accident victims throughout Florida involved in these cases have the right to seek compensation after an accident and it often wise to consider seeking legal counsel to make sure that you are compensated fairly.

Rather than being entirely responsible for your medical bills and lost wages, working with the at fault party and having proper representation during a lawsuit will help you with the expenses of recovering from your injury.

Here are some of the top ways that you can access assistance with your medical bills:

No-fault car insurance:

If you’re involved in a car accident with a motorist that is underinsured or unable to provide you with coverage, PIP can pay out $10,000 in your medical costs. Obtaining compensation from your insurance company will take a relatively short amount of time but working with an experienced attorney can make sure that you’ll have the right compensation from your insurance company.

Med Pay:

Med pay is a medical payment coverage that optional in the state of Florida. You should consider this type of coverage in your auto insurance policy as this can improve the amount of PIP that’s available.

Government run programs:

Medicare and Medicaid are government run programs that can help you to pay your medical costs. If you qualify for these programs you’ll be able to receive compensation.
