Paying for Medical Care After a Colorado Car Accident
If you were involved in a car accident, it’s critical that you see a doctor right away — even if you think your injuries are minor.
The Colorado car accident lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm have worked to help countless clients who saw serious injuries develop over time following an accident. Receiving medical attention right away could have helped their physical healing as well as their financial claim.
Paying the medical bills
Healthcare is astronomically expensive and it doesn’t take much for medical bills to climb well beyond your annual income. If your injuries are the result of a car accident, the other driver’s insurance company might be liable for all of your medical bills along with compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Be wary of early settlement offers
When you’re seriously injured in a car accident, the other driver’s insurance company might approach you with a settlement offer before you’re fully healed.
While your mounting medical bills look intimidating and the settlement could offer immediate relief, it’s important that you look out for your future interests. The settlement might not be enough to cover your ongoing treatment and care and the other damages you have suffered.
What to do while you wait for your case to resolve
Waiting is never easy. While you wait to make sure you’re fully recovered and the money from insurance is enough to manage your future health and resulting financial issues, the medical bills will keep getting bigger.
