Will I Have To Pay Back My Medical Insurance

Most automobile accident insurance policies provide med pay. Medpay covers the cost of your medical bills incident to a car accident whether or not you are at fault. The typical medpay provision will cover up to $5,000 of medical bills including ambulance, emergency room, medications, physician billings, chiropractic treatment and medical supplies as long as they are related to your vehicle collision.
Most medpay contracts indicate that if you recover monies from the other drivers insurance company for pain and suffering, you must reimburse your own insurance company.

Do You Have a Valid Injury Claim?

If you have been injured in a car accident and wish to seek damages from the other driver, you must first determine if your claim is valid.

As a rule of thumb, it is vital to contact your insurance company, the police, and if applicable, the department of motor vehicles (DMV) immediately following an accident in which you sustained an injury. State-level rules vary in terms of the time frame within which they allow accident victims to report a crash.
