There has been a lot of discussion regarding the healthcare industry over the past couple of years, and it is no mystery that medical billing can be confusing as all get out.  When you have an accident injury that was sustained in a car accident, your medical treatment is enough to worry about without having to worry about organizing your medical bills.  One trip to the emergency room for one person injured in an auto accident can result in a multitude of medical bills.  There is a facility charge for the hospital itself; there is a fee for the emergency room doctors; if x-rays are taken, there is an additional fee for the radiologist; and if you were transported by ambulance, there is a fee charged for the ambulance ride.  For ONE trip to the ER, a person will often times receive five different bills from five different places.
If you are in this situation, an accident injury lawyer can help you organize your bills and create a plan for paying them with the help of insurance money.  An injury attorney will also be aware of applicable laws and regulations that may affect how you pay bills and what bills need to be paid when.  If you have been injured in an accident, consider contacting an accident injury lawyer in your area for a free consultation.  Often times, at the very least, your attorney can help negotiate reductions in the amounts you are required to pay back.
