What to do after a car accident or workplace trauma?
Most people do not understand their treatment options or what coverage they may have following an accident. With regards to motor vehicle (car accident) trauma, the at fault party’s insurance will be responsible for covering your medical expenses under their liability coverage.
If the at fault party does not have coverage, you would still have coverage under your own insurance policy with regards to uninsured motorist coverage. Utilizing this coverage through your own car insurance does not penalize you or raise your rates. It is your right, under your own policy, to use this type of coverage if the at fault party does not have coverage.
What if I was at fault?
We are all human and mistakes happen. If you find yourself at fault in an accident, look to see if you have MedPay coverage under your policy. Medical payments coverage is an add on feature that a lot of drivers opt into. Some insured drivers are not aware they have purchased this type of coverage. This add-on covers expenses related to vehicular accidents. Also called “MedPay,” it covers the driver and any passengers, any pedestrians you may injure, and you—if you are riding as a passenger in another vehicle orare injured by a vehicle as a pedestrian such as traveling on a bike or other transportation.
It is important to set up a claim as soon as possible after the injury occurs to avoid denials due to time constraints with the at fault insurance company or your own insurance company if utilizing MedPay.
