Paying Medical Bills After a Car Accident

Pennsylvania Law Protects Personal Injury Victims

Many people who have been injured in an auto accident worry about paying hospital bills. The attorneys at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., can help by forcefully advocating for your rights under Pennsylvania law.

In Pennsylvania, if you are injured in an auto accident, your medical bills are initially paid by your own auto insurance carrier — even if your car was not involved in the accident or the accident was not your fault. This is why you should always report the auto accident to your own auto insurance company.

When you seek medical treatment for injuries sustained in an auto accident at a hospital, doctor's office, physical therapist, chiropractor, pharmacy or other medical provider, you should always provide your auto insurance name and claim number. If you have private health insurance, you should provide your health insurance card information as well.

Under Pennsylvania law, your own auto insurance carrier is responsible to pay for the medical bills you incur related to your auto accident injuries up to the limits of your personal auto insurance medical benefits.
