Who’s Responsible for Medical Bills After a Car Accident?
Many people wonder why their car insurance company pays for medical bills even though the accident wasn’t their fault. In Pennsylvania, we have what’s called "First Party Benefits" coverage. That means your car insurance – not the other driver’s insurance – is responsible for your medical bills.
The amount of money you receive for your medical bills depends on the amount of coverage you chose for your car insurance policy. Once that money runs out, your own health insurance kicks in.
There are some cases where the other driver may be held responsible for costs related to your car accident, but medical bills are nearly always handled this way for car accidents in Pennsylvania.
What if I Don’t Have Car Insurance?
If you’re underinsured – or even worse, uninsured – there will be serious limits to what type of money you’ll receive for your medical bills.
For people injured in pedestrian accidents without any car insurance, there’s the Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan. For example, if you’re uninsured and were hit by a car as a pedestrian or injured in a bicycle accident, and you don’t own a car, you may be able to receive limited coverage from this program.
