WHO PAYS MEDICAL BILLS FOR CHILD INJURED IN ACCIDENT?
Our lawyers have handled many cases where a child was injured in an accident. One initial question is who pays the child’s medical bills? The answer depends on the type of accident. For example, if the child is injured in a car accident, their parents’ auto insurance is likely to be responsible for the initial medical bills. However, with a dog bite injury, health insurance will pay the initial bills, but the dog owner’s homeowners’ insurance will have ultimate responsibility.
Health insurance will pay the child’s medical bills even if the accident was caused by another person. If a child’s parents pay a deductible or co-payments, the parents can be reimbursed out of any settlement. The health insurance company, or Medical Assistance, will also get repaid out of the child’s settlement.
