How Can I Pay My Bills While Recovering from a Car Accident with Injuries in North Carolina?
At Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A., our Charlotte personal injury attorneys know that North Carolina vehicle collisions change our clients’ lives. Not only are their lives placed on hold because they are hurt, but their mounting medical bills and lack of revenue can cause significant stress and anxiety.
When we partner with injury victims to pursue their personal injury claims, we outline each of their financial recovery needs to help them confidently move forward.
While we pursue the best outcome for each of our client’s cases, the question we receive time and time again is, “How can I pay my bills while my case is being negotiated with the at-fault party’s insurance company?”
While the answers may vary for each person, several potential options may help.
Potential Sources to Help Pay Bills While Recovering from a Personal Injury
One of the first lines of financial defense when recovering from a car accident with injuries is your personal health insurance. As soon as you begin seeking medical care, you should submit your personal insurance information to each of your physicians, so they can file a claim with your insurance provider.
If you do not have health insurance, some physicians may be willing to work with you based on the agreement that they will receive payment once you get your personal injury settlement. Our North Carolina auto accident and injury attorneys can help facilitate that conversation.
Next, look to your car insurance coverage for help. North Carolina insurance companies offer medical payments insurance, often called MedPay. MedPay helps with medical bills resulting from an auto accident.
Finally, depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be eligible to file a disability claim. In some cases, if you have an extended time for recovery, your physician may be able to provide documentation that will allow you to file for disability.
