Medical payments coverage after a car accident can help take care of injury-related costs, regardless of who may have been at fault. If you are filing an insurance claim, it might be a good idea to consult an injury law firm in Peachtree City.
An Overview of Medical Payments Coverage
After a car accident, you could face significant medical expenses. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2010 the average costs for a non-incapacitating injury was $22,300. An injury that incapacitates a victim costs about $69,200.
Medical payments coverage can help cover those costs and may even take care of any deductibles on your health insurance policy. Of course, this will depend on how much coverage you have available. You could have as little as $5,000 or as much as $100,000.
This coverage is available not only for the insured driver, but also passengers and family members and provides protection if you are injured as a pedestrian.
The following are just some examples of injury-related expenses that may be covered through medical payments coverage after a car accident:
- dental work;
- doctor appointments;
- nursing services;
- prosthetics; and
- funeral costs.
