When will the other party pay for my medical bills?

If you have been injured in an accident and you make your claim with your insurance company, your lawyer will take it from here. Usually what happens is, when you have completed treatment for any injuries you have sustained, and your lawyer has settled your claim, you will receive payment for your medical bills. Most people are unaware that the at-fault driver is responsible for paying for all of your medical bills, including the bills that were paid by the insurance company. It is something that is called the collateral source rule. This is when you make a claim for all of your medical bills and lost wages regardless of who paid the bill – it does not matter if you were still paid at work while you were out.
