If you’ve been injured on your motorcycle, you’ll no doubt suffer more than just the physical injuries. You’ll suffer some type of emotional stress, financial issues, and mental anguish. For many injured in a motorcycle accident, there is also the added stress of dealing with medical bills, especially if the injuries sustained were enough to keep you out of work. If you’re wondering how you’ll pay the bills, read on for some helpful tips.
If you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, your health insurance should be paying your medical bills. You may be thinking that’s not fair because you weren’t at fault for the accident. However, until any claim is settled, you’re still responsible for the bills. If you do wind up with a settlement, you’ll have to reimburse your health insurance, provider.
Medical Payment Insurance
You may have medical payment insurance as part of your motorcycle insurance coverage. You will need to check with your insurance company for more information on your policy, but if you have medical payment insurance, just like health insurance, this will cover your medical bills. If you receive a settlement, you’ll need to reimburse the insurance company.
If you don’t have any insurance to cover your medical bills and have no other means to do so, your injury attorney can write a letter to your doctors explaining that the injuries are related to a motorcycle accident and that you’re filing a claim against the other driver. The letter should state that once you’ve received a settlement, you are promptly paying your bills.
If the other driver involved in your accident is found to be responsible for the crash, you are entitled to receive compensation for medical expenses related to the incident. In some cases, your doctor may state that you’ll require future treatments, and an amount for those treatments may be included in any settlement negotiations.
