Car Accidents and Medical Treatment – What Are Your Options?
After a car accident, it is not uncommon for injured passengers to need medical treatment. In some cases, injuries are relatively minor, such as cuts and abrasions. In other cases, injuries can be extensive and life-threatening, including traumatic brain injuries, lost limbs, and back and spinal cord injuries.
Georgia is known as an “at-fault” state. This means that, under Georgia law, the party who is found to be responsible for the accident is responsible for paying the medical expenses of the injured parties. In most cases, the liable party (or his or her insurance company) must pay the following types of medical expenses:
- Ambulance transportation
- Emergency room costs
- Surgical expenses
- Diagnostic test expenses
- Hospital and doctor bills
- Chiropractic care
- Medical supplies
- In-patient hospital costs
- Rehabilitation and follow-up care expenses
- Physical therapy
However, until the case is settled, you may have to pay for your own medical expenses up front. Until then, if you have health insurance, your insurance company will generally pay for your treatment. If that’s not a possibility, some hospitals and doctors will be willing to treat you on a lien – a promise to pay – while you recover.
