Why Hiring Just "Any Firm" for Your Car Accident Isn't Smart!
Feb. 23, 2015
If you've been involved in a serious car or auto accident with injuries, then you don't need me or anyone else to tell you that you've got some serious decisions facing you. You know that the path to recovery is going to be long, painful, and expensive. You need to give careful thought to your choice in representation. But think about this.
Did you also know that it can be extremely hard to find follow up care once you've left the first responders or emergency care facility (ER). Many healthcare professionals don't or won't take auto accidents because of the uncertainty associated with being paid. The struggle is real. Now compound that struggle if you fall within a large portion of the public who don't have a no fault medical payments (med pay) rider in your auto insurance policy. That means that you are left with 1) financing the follow up care yourself out of pocket, 2) not getting the care you need. We can help!
If you have private or public health insurance (Medicare or Medicaid), then the process can be even more complex to navigate in order to avoid penalties and/or loss of coverage. Subrogation is an industry within insurance itself. Dealing with Medicare can be extremely cumbersome and time consuming with wait times averaging 6-8 months. The laws and doctrines are complex, but the reimbursement savings may be the difference in your case.
