What is Medical Payments Coverage?

What is Medical Payments Coverage? Why should you care? Well if you have been injured in an auto accident in Atlanta you be wondering how you are going to pay for your medical care. This is the first thing you should check. It is policy coverage provided by your automobile insurance policy. This is optional coverage. Whenever I ask callers if they have medical payments coverage through their automobile insurance policy they usually tell me they are fully covered.

The fact is fully covered could mean they only have the required legal minimum coverage which DOES NOT include medical payments coverage.

If you are reading after being in an auto accident in Atlanta, you should pull your policy and check for medical payments coverage. If you are hurt you now have a way to pay for it. Please note medical payments coverage varies in the amount of coverage. We typically see the coverage anywhere from $500.00 to $50,000.00.

This is by far the easiest way to obtain medical care if you hurt and unable to work due to your injuries and do not have health insurance.

10 Secrets Of Georgia Car Wreck Claims

Before you speak with an adjuster or speak to an attorney order our FREE book 10 Secrets to Georgia Car Wreck Claims. Atlanta Savannah car accident attorney Ty Wilson has written this book to educate you on the process of a Georgia car accident claim.

How Long Will My Car Accident Claim Take?

So how long will your car wreck claim take to complete. The simple answer is that depends. It depends on many factors.

1. Was there clear liability? Was it one hundred percent the fault of one party or to several drivers carry fault or blame for the accident.

2. Was anyone hurt? If not one was hurt the property damage claim to the vehicle should not take longer than a couple of months. If someone was injured did they seek treatment right away or are there major gaps in treatment.

3. Is there insurance coverage on the at-fault driver? If not, does the at-fault driver have any assets to pay for your medical care and your vehicle. Clearly a claim with no insurance coverage is much more difficult to pursue and collect on.

4. Does the other side want to settle? This can be the most important factor. If the other side does not wish to settle then likely a lawsuit will have to be filed and that can take much longer to resolve.
