  • Medical Bills Following a Truck or Car Accident

Serious injuries following an accident mean great pain and suffering and unfairly mounting medical bills totaling thousands of dollars. The need for continuing medical treatment can mean an extended need or lifetime of medical bills resulting from an accident. Medical bills can accumulate and growing concern arises as to how to ensure payment of all the medical bills that follow a serious accident. Bills are charged for the emergency room, hospital, surgery, physical therapy and individual doctors, anesthesiologists and MRI bills. This financial strain and worry is difficult to handle during a time when physical recovery should be most important.

As part of the investigation, development and prosecution of your case, The Roberts Law Firm P.C. will coordinate with your medical providers to establish a complete claim noting all medical bills charged and incurred to you and the likely future medical costs associated with your case. Medical benefits after an accident may be paid by your health insurance company, own automobile medical payments coverage and/or the insurance liability coverage of the responsible driver. The Roberts Law Firm P.C. has the experience and knowledge to assist you with managing the medical bills and costs associated with your case.

Health Insurance Claims

After a vehicle accident, the opposing insurance company is unlikely to begin paying your medical bills. Payments are likely denied or deferred and victims are left to question what to do about the mounting medical bills. The injured party may want to direct his or her medical bills for payment by his or her own personal healthcare provider and payment of usual co-pays and deductibles. Sending the medical bills to your health insurance provider will not limit the compensation that you can recover for your claim. The Roberts Law Firm P.C. has the knowledge and experience to handle and advise you on the issues that you face related to your medical bills and help you obtain needed medical services following an injury.

Injury Victims Who Do Not Have Health Insurance

Being injured in an accident and then not having medical insurance to help pay the mounting medical bills is difficult. There has been much recent news about the millions of Americans currently struggling without health care coverage. Nearly all uninsured injury victims do not have the money to pay for their injuries out-of-pocket.

By hiring The Roberts Law Firm P.C., the Firm will work with you and medical providers to ensure that you are able to receive available medical care for your injuries. Getting the treatment that you need in the current system requires hiring competent legal counsel to ensure you are being treated fairly. Some medical providers will allow their bills to be paid back following the completion of your injury case. Navigating this complex medical-legal system requires the help of competent legal counsel through The Roberts Law Firm P.C.

Medical Liens and Credit Score

Problems with medical bills may also impact an injured victim’s credit score and credit rating and medical bills may be handed over to a collection agency demanding payment. In the case of unpaid medical bills, Roberts has successfully deferred, reduced and obtained waiver of medical bills not paid by insurance as part of the settlement and negotiation process. To the extent there are medical liens, Roberts has the knowledge of how to evaluate such liens and work to avoid or reduce the liens to the maximum amount permitted under Missouri and federal law. The lien process can be complex but this Law Firm has the knowledge and experience to properly handle such matters.
