Our Nashville auto accident lawyers have one primary goal in mind when we fight for our clients—getting them maximum compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and other accident-related expenses. And even though we do everything in our power to help clients get their checks as quickly as possible, the process can often still take months to finalize. That leaves victims with a gap between the time they were injured and the time they get paid.

This can be a difficult time period for injured victims and their loved ones. While they often have peace of mind knowing that their claims are in good hands, they may also need money right away—especially if they’re too hurt to go back to work.

Three ways to handle big medical bills while you’re waiting for your compensation to arrive include:

  1. Submit your medical bills to your health insurance provider—If you have health insurance, some of your medical bills may be covered through that policy.
  2. Subrogation—Because health insurance plans don’t always cover all accident-related expenses, the costs may still be too much for your family to bear. However, your health insurer may pay for more or all of your medical costs upfront in exchange for being reimbursed when you get your settlement in a process called subrogation.
  3. Payment plans—Hospitals, EMS services, and other healthcare providers are often willing to work with victims on their bills. Setting up a payment plan can make your bills manageable while you wait to get your compensation check.

After an accident, you need an experienced law firm on your side that knows how to get you the money you deserve. Contact Ponce Law today for a free consultation.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
