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.

case. The outcome of your case will be directly influenced by the lawyer
