Unfortunately, even when someone else is responsible for your injuries, you will be expected to pay your medical expenses long before you receive any kind of compensation or funding to do so. While you wait for your case to settle, you can have your medical expenses billed to your own private insurance. If you do this, you can still have those costs compensated through your personal injury claim. Alternatively, you can have your attorney file a letter of protection on your behalf. This will ask that the medical care providers take care of you with the agreement that they’ll be paid when your lawsuit is resolved and your compensation is awarded.
