One of the most common questions our attorneys get from new clients is: How do I pay my medical bills after a car accident? This is generally a huge concern for those who have been involved in an accident. What most people don’t know is that – there is a solution to this!
Hospital and doctor’s visits can be expensive and if you have sustained an injury that prevents you from working (or even if you haven’t), you may be having difficulties paying off the bills.
Luckily, there are some options for recovering for injuries sustained in a car accident. Focusing on your health and well-being after a car accident is a great first step, and learning more about these options may help you pay off the various bills you have accumulated.

Who will pay my medical bills?
After a car accident, making sure you are safe and healthy is the most important thing to do. Yet doing so may require numerous hospital and doctor’s visits. While you are healing, it is not especially relaxing to be faced with looming debt. In Texas, the at-fault driver in the accident may be responsible for paying the medical expenses of the not-at-fault driver.
Drivers are required to carry a minimum liability amount of $30,000 for each person (and a maximum of $60,000), and $25,000 for property damage per accident.
While these figures may seem sufficient, it is important to remember that not only are the immediate effects of a car accident dangerous, but lingering injuries from an accident may lead to chronic pain and expensive medical treatment for years into the future. You can file a claim with your own insurance to cover these damages, but that could lead to higher premiums.
Speaking with an experienced car accident attorney may help clear up confusion as to what the best course of action is to pursue getting your bills paid.
How do I prove the other driver was at fault?
Having evidence of the other driver’s negligent driving may be helpful in filing a successful claim with their insurance provider. Collecting evidence at the scene of a car accident, especially one wherein you sustained injuries, may not be the first thing on your mind. However, after making sure everyone is safe, it may be important to follow certain steps to ensure that you have evidence of who the driver at fault was.
Calling the police will help create a paper trail of evidence. The police will likely file a police report in which they cite who the at-fault driver was. If there are any eye witnesses at the scene of the accident, be sure to speak with them. Collect contact information from them, as well as from the other driver.
