You're in a car accident and now you have medical bills piling up and you can't work because you're injured. Who is responsible?
The at-fault party is responsible for paying for your medical bills and lost wages. However, they must first accept fault, or be proven at fault, for causing your injuries.
Secondly, they will generally not make any payments until you have completed any accident related treatment and submitted a settlement demand package that includes your medical records, bills, and documentation of lost wages.
To claim lost wages, a doctor must take the plaintiff off work and the employer confirms the corresponding time missed from work.
Alternatively, a plaintiff must prove they missed work because of attending the medical appoints, which the employer confirms as well
These types of situations occur more often than not. That's why it's crucial that you get in touch with the right personal injury law firm to represent you. It will make all the difference in your case. Protect your rights!
