Who pays for the doctor bills?
In personal injury cases many doctors will not require money during the course of treatment, and wait until a settlement is reached to get paid- this is called taking a case on a ‘lien’ basis. If liability or fault is questionable sometimes it’s best to use your private medical insurance for your needs but that will depend on your specific case. Once fault is determined, the at-fault party and their insurance company will be responsible for your medical expenses. Your doctor and your attorney will consult regularly to make sure that the expenses incurred are within reason and that they will be in fact covered by the at-fault party’s insurance.
