Passengers who suffer injuries in Georgia car accidents often do not know how to go about getting their medical bills paid or what to do following a collision. As Peachtree City accident attorneys, we understand the difficulties passengers face after suffering injuries in a crash and want to provide more information about passenger injury claims in Georgia.
There are several ways passengers can get their medical bills paid for and collect compensation for their damages, including:
- Their own auto insurance coverage
- The insurance coverage of the driver of the car they were traveling in
- The other driver’s insurance coverage
A passenger can collect damages for their medical bills, ambulance costs, and even lost income through their own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance coverage or the driver’s PIP. Additionally, injured passengers can also collect damages through either of the driver’s liability insurance coverage to pay for their bodily injury liability. Another way to get medical expenses reimbursed is through a passenger’s own health insurance. Additionally, the driver of the car may have also carried medical payments coverage, which will cover a passenger’s medical and hospital bills related to the accident.
Because there are many different ways to get reimbursed for medical expenses and lost income, it is best to talk with an experienced attorney about your specific case. A Fayette County accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith can review your case and help you collect the most compensation possible.
