Have you been hurt in a car accident because of someone else’s carelessness and you need medical care? Maybe your insurance doesn’t cover the treatment you need or you just don’t have insurance. Can you get the care you need without worrying about how you will pay for it?
Hello, my name is Michael Galyen. I am a personal injury attorney at the law firm of Bailey & Galyen. We have helped people just like you for 40 years, providing comprehensive advice and representation in matters related to car accidents and all other personal injuries.
As a general rule, when you have been injured in a car accident, it is important to seek medical care as quickly as possible. However, we understand the concern that medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly. It’s important to understand that if the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness, then they will be responsible to pay for those medical treatments, if it is determined that the bills are both reasonable and necessary.
If the other driver has insurance and their insurance has determined that they are in fact liable for the accident, then their insurance is obligated to pay for the reasonable and necessary charges for that medical treatment.
However, this process is not normally as clear cut as I’ve described. Often times it’s determined that the other driver is not 100% at fault, or maybe the insurance company may suggest that some of the treatment you received was not necessary, or the bills are not reasonable.
The complexities of this area can be vast, so it’s important to seek advice from attorney’s who know the law.
