How to Get Your Medical Bills Paid After a Car Accident?

Massachusetts Car Accident Medical Expense Reimbursement

Massachusetts Minimum Car Insurance Requirements

If you live in Massachusetts and wish to own and drive your own vehicle, it is required that you obtain car insurance. The minimum coverage you must have is outlined as follows:

Required Coverage

Bodily Injury to Others

Personal Injury Protection

Bodily Injury Caused by an Uninsured Motorist

Damage to Someone Else’s Property

Required Minimum Limit

$20,000 per person/$40,000 per accident

$8,000 per person or accident

$20,000 per person/$40,000 per accident

$5,000 per accident

In short, this means that if you (1) injury someone else in the accident, your insurance covers up to $20,000 in liability damages; (2) if you are injured, up to $8,000 of your medical bills are covered no matter who caused the accident; (3) if you are injured by an uninsured motorist, up to $20,000 of your medical bills are covered and; (4) if you damage someone else’s property in an accident, up to $5,000 of that persons damages are covered by your insurance policy. Again, this is the minimum required amount to have in Massachusetts to operate your own motor vehicle.

Who Pays?

  1. Your insurance company covers the expenses. If the expenses exceed the insurance company limit, you must pay out of pocket. If you are not insured, then:
  2. Refer to the insurance company of a household relative (spouse, sibling, parent). If there are no insured relatives, then:
    • Refer to the insurance company of the owner of the other vehicle involved. If they are also not insured, then:
      • Refer to the insurance company of the driver of the other vehicle involved. If they are not insured, then:
        • Refer to the State of Massachusetts Assigned Claims Facility.

Filing a Car Accident Lawsuit

There are several reasons people chose to file claims against the driver’s insurance. Whatever the reason, you must meet a certain set of requirements to set outside of the claim with your insurance company to file one against the driver.

In order to file a claim against the person who caused the accident, you must have accumulated at least $2,000 of medical expenses and/or the injuries must be incredibly severe such as permanent disfigurement, broken bones or loss of vision/hearing.

Third-party benefits apply to those who can provide sufficient proof of pain and suffering as a result of the accident, lost wages from working due to medical leave, and coverage for damages to your car.

Additionally, you can file for third-party benefits that include (up to) $25,000 for bodily injury per person, $50,000 for bodily injury per accident and $25,000 for property damages per accident.
