Check your car insurance policy—Do you have
medical payments coverage? Medical payments coverage is coverage a driver in Virginia can purchase
which can be used to pay her medical bills in the event she is injured
in a motor vehicle collision.
A driver can submit her medical bills to her insurance company and request
payment in the amount of the bills related to treatment for injuries she
sustained in the collision. An injured driver's use of her medical
payments coverage does not affect her ability to recover from the negligent
driver who injured her. In other words, she is entitled to recover from
both. In addition, her insurance company cannot raise her premiums just
because she received money from her medical payments coverage.
Understanding how medical payments coverage works, and to maximize your
recovery, it is a good idea to obtain the assistance of a good lawyer.
