Medical bills | How are those paid after a car accident?
I was in a car accident and my medical bills are $14,000.
Now does the insurance company pay that or does that come out of my settlement?
Your medical bills will come out of your settlement. They are part of the settlement. Make sure that you are negotiating a settlement that includes that amount. If for example, you are looking at getting (to your pocket) $30,000, then you want to get a settlement for at least $44,000 to allow the $14,000 payment to doctors.
