Who will pay my bills?
In the cases we handle, if you carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage, your car insurance policy will pay your bills up to your policy limits. We pay them back once we settle with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If you have health insurance, again, your health insurance can pay the bills until we settle with the at-fault party. The reason we use your insurance coverages to pay your bills initially is because in Washington, the at-fault party’s insurance company does not legally have to pay your bills until you sign a release to close your claim. If you do not have PIP or health insurance, the at-fault party’s insurance company will pay your bills once we settle the case or win in court. Many health care providers will wait until we settle your case to receive payment if we are representing you.
