Who is going to pay for my medical expenses following my Florida car accident?
If you’re involved in a car accident in the state of Florida and you have medical expenses it depends on various factors as to who would pay for the damage. First and foremost, regardless of who’s at fault, you can get your medical bills paid under your personal injury protection or PIP or no fault benefits. They would pay for 80% of your medical benefits up to $10,000.
If the accident is the fault of someone else and they also have insurance coverage, you can then make a claim against their insurance company for the additional medical expenses, both that you have already occurred as well as what may be incurred in the future for your medical treatment. Additionally, if you have medical insurance, you can get your medical treatment under the health insurance. Keep in mind if you use your health insurance benefits and you receive a recovery at the end of your case in the form of a settlement or a jury verdict then you will be responsible to pay that health insurance back.
