WHO PAYS MEDICAL BILLS AFTER MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?
Our motorcycle accident lawyers have been involved in many tragic cases. The fact is, there is less protection on a motorcycle than there is being in a car. That often results in bad injuries. The first issue that comes up in every case is how to pay the medical bills. You can purchase medical coverage for your motorcycle, but most people don’t do that. Hopefully, you have good health insurance coverage. Your health insurance will cover your motorcycle accident injuries even if there was another vehicle at fault. However, you may still have a deductible and copays.
If another vehicle hit you on your motorcycle, or caused you to run into them, their insurance is also responsible for your medical bills. Unfortunately, the other car’s insurance will not pay medical bills immediately. They will only pay your accident medical bills when you settle the case. Of course, the settlement includes more than medical bills. Therefore, in most cases, you have to wait until your case is completely ready to settle before you can get medical reimbursement from the other driver’s insurance.
MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYERS
When the accident is the other driver’s fault, you are entitled to more than your medical bills. First, of course, you have to be compensated for the motorcycle. Sometimes the bike can be repaired, but often it is totaled. Next, you need to be reimbursed for any lost wages. With many motorcycle accident cases, the injury results in significant time away from work. Our lawyers will work with your employer to document your lost wages and get reimbursement when we settle the case.
In addition, you are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering and future needs. This can be the most important part of your case. Surgery may set your bones, but you are never quite the same again. Unfortunately, many of our clients also end up with head injuries, sometimes even they were wearing a helmet. This can mean some loss of cognition or periodic headaches. Whatever the repercussions from your motorcycle accident, the car that was at fault should be held responsible.
