AVOIDING FINANCIAL TROUBLE AFTER AN ACCIDENT
Even a seemingly minor accident can lead to serious injuries. A low-speed “fender bender” or a shock from a poorly manufactured power tool can lead to chronic pain and other long-lasting conditions. An injured individual might worry about seeing a doctor due to the rising cost of health care. If you are injured, it is crucial that you seek medical care.
With offices in Tyler and serving all of East Texas, Vickery Law Firm is prepared to represent injured clients in the full range of personal injury cases. If you are concerned about seeking the care and attention of a medical professional following an accident, there are numerous factors to consider.
- Your own insurance policy will cover medical expenses to a certain degree.
- Your medical bills will be built into an insurance settlement that your lawyer negotiates.
- If you have paid your medical bills out of your own pocket, your settlement will compensate you.
- If your insurance company has paid your medical bills, it will likely seek reimbursement from your settlement.
It is crucial that you do not wait to seek medical treatment. You might worry that your chosen medical provider will not be approved by the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier. You do not have to wait for approval before seeking medical care.
If you do not have insurance and do not have the money to pay for medical treatment, you should contact an attorney. An experienced personal injury lawyer can present a letter of protection to your chosen medical provider. This is a document that guarantees that the provider will be paid from the injury settlement proceeds.
