After being involved in a car accident, you will certainly want to know who is responsible for paying for your medical expenses. While you may be able to take the person who caused the accident to court to help cover some of your expenses, that does little to alleviate your financial burden immediately following the accident. Since Arizona is not a “No fault” state when it comes to car accidents, there are a few things you will need to keep in mind when getting your medical expenses paid.
Despite the fact that Arizona is not a “No fault” state, you will still be responsible for paying your medical bills even if the other drive is at fault. Legally speaking, the person who is at fault is only responsible for paying your damages to resolve your lawsuit. While medical bills are frequently included as part of these damages, the person who is at fault does not have to pay your medical bills on an ongoing basis.
Getting Your Medical Bills Paid
While the person who is at fault is not responsible for paying your medical bills on an ongoing basis, your insurance may help to pay for these expenses. The amount of assistance you receive from your car insurance or from your health insurance will depend upon your policy. Therefore, it is helpful to work with a medical professional who has a history of assisting those who have been involved in car accidents and helping patients get the coverage you need.
