Who Pays For My Medical Bills And Lost Wages After A Motorcycle Accident?

Attorney Mitchell Proner answers the question, “who pays for my medical bills and lost wages after a motorcycle accident?”


>>Mitchell Proner: ““When a motorcycle accident happens typically the injured rider has a lot of questions. They want to know who is going to pay for the bike? who is going to pay the medical bills? who is going to pay for their lost earnings?

>>Mitchell Proner: With regard to your medical bills, and your loss of earnings typically they are not going to get paid by the adverse carrier immediately. They’ll get paid at the end of the case. Your own health insurance will pay your medical bills. You’re lost of earnings will be paid for either by your employer through sick time, or disability payments.

>>Mitchell Proner: If you are self-employed and you didn’t make the decision to purchase disability coverage then you are not going to get paid for your lost earnings until the end of the claim, but it is your medical bills and your lost earnings and the extent of your injuries and who’s at fault that will ultimately determine the ultimate value of your case.
