Several types of insurance may be available to cover your injury
A person who is wounded in California may be able to have their medical costs covered by a number of insurance policies. Private insurance, which you may acquire on your own or via your work, is the most prevalent. Medi-Cal or comparable government insurance policies are another possibility.
There may be other options for covering your medical expenses, such as your renter’s or homeowner’s insurance policies. Your medical bills, as well as the costs of anybody else harmed, may be covered depending on the circumstances of the sort of accident. Of course, this would not apply in the event of a car accident, but it may in the case of a slip and fall accident.
There’s a chance you’re covered by many policies
It is common for an accident victim to be covered by multiple insurance policies. In such case, your lawyer will need to review your policies to see which ones will cover what. We are familiar with the ins and outs of all sorts of insurance policies and can guarantee that your claims are submitted to the insurer most likely to pay the greatest amount on your claim.
If you win a personal injury case, your insurer is likely to get paid
If your insurer covers your medical expenses, they will almost certainly be entitled to a part of the settlement you get. Your insurance provider may even offer to file a lawsuit on your behalf, although we typically advise against doing so. Remember that your insurance company wants to get paid as soon as possible, but you want a settlement that covers your long-term damages.
