When you have been injured in a car accident or any type of accident, someone has to pay your medical bills. Ambulance bills, emergency room bills, x-rays, physical therapy, and doctor bills can become overwhelming. Unfortunately, some people have told me that they took out loans to pay their bills, and this is definitely not the way to get the bills paid. You need an experienced lawyer to navigate the insurance companies and medical bills for you. Your PIP (personal injury Protection) could be used to pay off some of your medical bills. Your lawyer could also contact all medical providers to hold off on all medical bills until a settlement is reached or a verdict is given in your case. It is also essential to hire a lawyer who can also negotiate with medical providers to ensure that most of the compensation for your case goes into your pocket and not into the hands of medical providers.
