When you are injured you need to understand how to handle the medical bills.
Make sure that you get them paid through your medical card, group health insurance, or medical payments coverage.
This will reduce problems with the doctors and hospitals coming after you for unpaid bills.
At the end of the case, you can reimburse your insurance company with the proceeds from the injury settlement.
The insurance company for the party who injured you will most likely not pay any of the bills until the end of the case when it settles the claim with you.
You may also be able to negotiate some of the bills paid through your insurance company to a lower amount. This will put more money in your pocket.
Make sure to consult with an experienced Illinois injury lawyer when you are faced with medical bills from an accident or injury.
