Every year there are an estimated 6 million accidents that take place. Arizona had 129,750 crashes in 2019 and 911 were fatal.

What Happens When You are Injured in an Arizona Accident and have No Insurance Coverage Options?
Even in situations where you were hit by another driver and it is clear, they are liable for your resulting damages, ultimately, you are still responsible for paying for your own medical treatment if you were injured. There are several ways under Arizona injury laws that you can have your medical treatment paid for.
- You can use your own health insurance so that you only have to co-payments out-of-pocket and then when you obtain a settlement the insurance company gets paid for the costs they covered while you were litigating your case. Now if you have auto insurance, you may be able to use that for the deductibles and co-pays.
- If you have the required underinsured/uninsured coverage you may be able to use this for medical expenses if the driver who caused your accident had no insurance coverage or not enough coverage.
- If you have no health insurance coverage paying for your medical treatment will be up to you. Your Phoenix personal injury attorney will be fighting for your best interests and so that all of your costs will be included in your settlement including your medical expenses. But until you obtain your settlement, it is highly likely that your doctor will be expecting to have their costs paid as you are given care.
In this situation, it is critical that you clearly communicate with the billing office and your doctor that you have an open personal injury claim that you and your lawyer are working towards a settlement. This may make them more open to being cooperative with you and finding a way that you could pay in more affordable monthly payments until you obtain the money from your personal injury case.
