Can You Be Held Liable for Car Accident Medical Bills if Your Loved One Has Passed Away?
It is possible that you will be held liable for your loved one’s medical bills if you were the beneficiary of their estates. This only happens if their medical insurance does not provide enough payout to cover the bills incurred. In California, if you are a child of a deceased loved one who died after receiving medical treatment for their car accident injury, then you should be protected by law to not have to pay for this if you cannot afford it. In the event that you’d like to dispute the medical insurance payout your deceased loved one receives, you should first contact an attorney to discuss your case.
