If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, there are many factors at play from motorcycle insurance to hospital bills. Along with any injuries sustained in the motorcycle accident it can be quite overwhelming to process all of this.
Let’s talk about hospital liens and third party. What this means is if you are involved in a motorcycle accident the Texas property code allows the hospital you are treated at, potentially in the emergency room to file a lien. What that means is a lien gets attached to your motorcycle accident settlement proceeds. That accident settlement proceed then goes to cover the hospital bill before it goes to you.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation where you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and in the hospital, remember, before you give any hospital staff, any information about your motorcycle insurance, whether it’s yours or the other parties,
you need to talk to a motorcycle accident attorney.
Hospitals often try to take part of the motorcycle insurance settlement. In most every motorcycle accident case! The problem with this is the hospital will refuse to bill your health insurance and refuses to take those health insurance rates. Instead what they try to do is charge exorbitant rates to motorcycle accident victims as uninsured or as a result of a third party accident. When the hospital goes this route, it can eat up all the motorcycle accident settlement proceeds for the client.
If an injured motorcycle rider is in the hospital in an emergency situation, they should possibly send a family member to do a quick free consult with a motorcycle accident attorney.
If nothing else, nothing bad will happen if you need to wait a few days until you get out of the hospital to give them your motorcycle insurance information. The one thing you need to do is give the hospital your health insurance information. If the hospital refuses it, send the information to them via a certified letter afterwards and tell them to bill your health insurance. If you do not have any health insurance, you need to contact a motorcycle accident attorney as that will be a whole other issue.
Hospitals try to refuse health insurance because of the low health insurance reimbursement rates as they would much rather charge exorbitant rates to the motorcycle insurance and take settlement money intended for you.
