One of the things people worry about after an accident is how to pay for medical treatment. This is made even worse if the victim does not have any health care. It is very important to go to the doctor to seek the medical treatment that you need. If you do not, it is difficult to prove that the injury came from the accident - and this will greatly weaken any case you may wish to bring for compensation. If you have no health insurance and no money to pay for medical treatment, there are a few ways to get medical help. Automobile insurance companies often have separate medical coverage in the event of an accident. Using this insurance does not take away your claim later for other results of an accident, such as future medical expenses and lost wages. If you retain an attorney to represent you in your accident, that attorney can act as an intermediary between you and your health care provider, so that you can receive the medical attention you need.
The attorney can explain that you are seeking compensation and that the health care provider will be paid once the lawsuit is settled. It is important to realize that not every health care provider will treat without receiving payment through insurance or from the victim, but an attorney is an asset in this case.
