How To Get Medical Care For Your Car Accident Injury When You Have No Medical Insurance

West Chester, Mason, and Cincinnati Ohio

As a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer I have had many clients with severe injuries but did not have medical insurance.  In non emergency situations you may not be able to find medical care for your car accident injuries. Doctors and hospitals want to be paid. Without medical insurance you need to know what you can do to get medical care. The first thing to know is not to expect the insurance company for the person that caused your car accident to pay for your medical bills as they go. In some rare cases they may, particularly if they want to control you, if you have a serious injury. But normally the insurance company will not pay you as you go for your personal injuries. In fact in Ohio they are not legally obligated to pay until there is a verdict or settlement against their insured. You can look to your own car insurance policy to see if you have medical payments. This pays you for injuries caused while you were in your car regardless of who was at fault. The problem is that most people carry from $1000-$5000 of this coverage. A one night stay in the emergency room could eat up that whole amount. I normally do not like to recommend one named doctor to my clients. This is because if the case ends up in Court a smart defense lawyer will ask how you found this doctor. Pointing to your car accident lawyer makes it sound as if the lawyer is manufacturing your case. However when it is absolutely necessary there are doctors I know that will take a letter of protection and treat you for your  injuries. This is your promise to pay them out of your lawsuit proceeds. Also there are services that can help you with prescription medication. You can try directly with the drug company or you can hire a company that advocates for you normally for a monthly cost of $20-50 per month. It takes effort but you can find medical and drug care if you have a personal injury as the result of a car accident Also you can go to your local emergency room if you have serious pain and have not found a doctor to take care of you. However this only works for so long. Many of the hospitals have clinics that allow you to pay for treatment based on a sliding scale in relation to your income.  I try to help my clients get the medical care they need my goal is to try to help you through the difficulty your injury causes you.
