How Do You Deal with Your Medical Bills After Hit-and-Run Incident?
In California, all vehicle owners are required by law to have auto insurance. At a minimum, auto-insurance will reimburse your medical bills although the amount will be determined by several factors – some, which are not in your control. Thus, the common advice for medical treatment in a car crash is to proceed with it immediately if you have insurance since your insurance will be less likely to reject the cost. There are other strategies available to deal with this situation, and a personal legal counsel can help you with this.
