How Do I Pay for My Medical Bills After an Accident?

Any type of accident has the risk of leading to serious injuries – and financial damages through medical bills as well. When your incident isn’t your fault, but another party’s, that party then becomes responsible for paying your medical expenses. Your insurance policy may also help cover some of the costs.

The exact amount of your compensation from the responsible party will depend on the details of your case, including the degree of fault, the extent of injuries, possible future medical costs, and more. These details may also determine if you need to use any of your insurance benefits to help pay for medical costs.

How Do I Recover Lost Income After an Accident?

Some accidents result in injuries that can require time off from work or limited hours. Both of these situations can have adverse effects on your income. Long-lasting injuries can even cause extensive amounts of lost income. If another party is at fault for your accident, you can recover compensation to make up for current and future lost income. In Montana, you may even be able to receive compensation for lost wages immediately, even before your case has reached settlement or judgment.
