Injured by a Negligent Driver in a Car Accident, But Don’t Have Health Insurance? (Part 1)
Unfortunately, lack of health insurance is becoming a larger and larger problem for many people who have been injured in car accidents throughout Arizona and in the United States. With the state of the economy, people losing their jobs, and the cost of healthcare and health insurance on the rise, more and more people are losing their coverage or simply can’t afford to buy good health care coverage.
If you are injured in a car accident, the very first thing you should always do is seek medical care for your injuries immediately. If you’re in life threatening condition, the hospital will treat you regardless of whether you have health insurance or not. But if down the road you need surgery to treat the injuries that resulted from the car accident, and you don’t have medical insurance, what can you do?
As Glendale car accident lawyers, part of our job is ensure that our clients are getting the medical care they need to effectively treat their injuries. For clients with good health insurance coverage, this isn’t a problem. Their health insurance company will simply pay the costs for medical treatment and care. In the future, their health insurance company might be reimbursed partly or completely for the cost by the at fault driver’s insurance company. But the point is that they have quick access to quality care. Not every client that we see is so lucky.
