How do I get medical expenses covered in a personal injury claim?
Medical expenses are a fairly standard part of any personal injury settlement, but you will need proper documentation to get everything covered. Make sure to save every bill, payment receipt, and other records you get from your doctor after your injury.
If your doctor does not offer to provide you with documentation of your visits, ask for it. You will have to show all your bills to the insurance company to get them covered. If you are missing any billing statements, contact your doctor’s office to get a copy. Remember that the insurance company wants to protect its bottom line, so it will not agree to reimburse you for anything unless it has hard proof that you paid.
