How to get medical treatment after an auto accident

On Behalf of | Mar 9, 2017 | Personal Injury

Motor vehicle accidents happen every day in eastern Missouri. Sometimes, drivers and passengers are able to walk away unharmed. But, more often than not, these accidents result in injuries that require medical treatment.

Unfortunately, most car accident victims do not have the money to pay for medical treatment, especially if they do not have health insurance. If you have found yourself in this situation, you are probably anxious and stressed.

You should not have to choose between getting the medical treatment you need and putting food on the table, especially if the accident was not your fault.

You should not have to deal with an auto insurance company that is going to try to force you to agree to an unfair settlement, even though you did nothing wrong.

You should not have to let this accident ruin your life, leave you with a permanent injury or chronic pain, or bury you in medical debt.

The good news is that with a compassionate personal injury lawyer on your side, you can:

  • Get the medical treatment you need.
  • Demand a fair settlement from the insurance company.
  • Move forward with your life.

Attorney Matt Weber advocates for car accident victims who lack health insurance or would otherwise be treated unfairly by the insurance company. He helps his clients get back on their feet and move forward with their lives in a positive direction.

Getting medical treatment without paying upfront

Very few Americans have extra money lying around to pay for unexpected medical treatment. Luckily, many doctors are willing to provide treatment on a lien when a patient is working with a lawyer to settle a personal injury claim. That means the medical bills are paid out of the insurance settlement and not out of your pocket.

When to call a personal injury lawyer

Anyone who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by another driver should work with a personal injury lawyer to make sure that they get a full and fair settlement. This includes victims of car accidents, truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.

The insurance adjuster who will speak with you after an accident has only the insurance company’s best interests in mind. Before making any statements or agreeing to an insurance settlement, you need to speak to someone who will give you advice and tell you what your claim is really worth.
