Have you been seriously injured in an accident caused by another person's careless or reckless behavior? If so, you may be wondering who is going to pay for your medical treatment. Accident victims should not have to pay for medical treatment out of their own pocket, particularly in accidents in which the injured party is not at fault. Who is going to pay for your medical treatment will largely depend on the type of accident in which you were involved.
In car accident cases, the determination as to who will pay for medical treatment will be based on whether you chose to purchase traditional car insurance or "no-fault" car insurance. Individuals with no-fault insurance will simply need to file a claim with their own insurance company to get medical treatment and other accident-related bills paid. If you sustained permanent or life-threatening injuries, you may also be able to pursue legal action against the liable party regardless of your no-fault coverage. If you have traditional insurance, you will need to file a claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company so that the party responsible for causing your injuries can be held financially liable for his or her actions. In other types of accidents, you may be able to pursue damages by filing a lawsuit or claim against the individual directly responsible for causing your injuries.
