Paying for your medical bills after an auto accident is a common concern among people injured in Bucks County auto accidents. It doesn’t matter where you live in PA (Bensalem, Newtown, or Doylestown), Pennsylvania law states that you must first look to your auto insurance policy for medical coverage to pay your medical bills. Pennsylvania has no fault auto insurance. This means that no matter who caused the car accident (or whose fault is was), your auto insurance pays for your medical bills up to the limits that you chose on your auto insurance policy.
After a Bensalem auto accident involving personal injury, first get yourself to a hospital if you feel any twinge of pain. Aches and pains from auto accidents usually only get worse in the first 24 hours after an accident. While at the hospital, if possible, give them your auto insurance contact information. When you get home from the hospital and you have rested, you must make a report of the Bensalem auto accident by calling your auto insurance company. Your insurance company will then provide you with a claim number to give to the hospital or other medical providers.
While at home try to locate the Declarations Page of your Pennsylvania auto insurance policy. On the Declarations Page, you will find your medical coverage limits so that you can see how much auto insurance coverage that you have to pay for medical bills. There may also be other insurance available to pay for your medical bills.
