If you suffered injuries due to a car accident, you likely have many questions regarding how you may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. the following are some answers to commonly asked questions following car accidents resulting from someone else’s negligence.
What if I do not have a valid driver’s license?
If you do not have a valid driver’s license, you will not be prevented from receiving compensation for your injuries due to someone else’s negligence. However, it is important to note that if you do not have a driver’s license the police officer making an accident report May issue year a citation regarding your lack of driver’s license.
Do I have to speak to the other driver’s insurance company?
The insurance company for the negligent driver will contact you regarding information surrounding your injuries and the accident. Make sure never to agree to have these conversations recorded.
Additionally, never provide any information that is not necessary, such as how you are currently feeling or whether you believe that accident was partially your fault. Also, you should never agree to sign a full medical release for your complete medical history. The other driver’s insurance has the right to view only medical documents that relate to the specific accident involving their client.
How do I get my medical bills paid following my car accident?
If you were injured in a car accident, you likely have medical bills involving hospitalizations, surgery, prescriptions, physical therapy, or continued medical treatments. Typically, your health insurance company will pay for your medical bills as you wait for determinations regarding your settlement from the other driver’s insurance company. After you receive a determination regarding a settlement offer, the other driver’s insurance company will then reimburse your medical providers and your own health insurance company for any bills that were paid for your medical treatments.
