Clearwater is a dangerous place for truck accidents. The roads have a lot of through-traffic that requires trucks to drive on them. US 19 and Gulf to Bay Blvd are examples of congestion with a lot of trucks. There are so many lights and stops that trucks inevitably cause crashes. We have also observed many commercial vehicles like landscapers or service trucks causing accidents in Clearwater. With all of these factors, truck accidents are simply an unfortunate reality.
Who Pays For Medical Bills After a Truck Accident?
After a truck accident, your medical bills are paid by your own PIP or no fault insurance. This covers up to $10,000 and does not raise your insurance rates. Once this money is exhausted, you have two options. You can bill through your health insurance if you have it, or enter into an agreement with your doctor called a Letter of Protection (LOP). An LOP is an agreement signed by you, your lawyer, and your doctor that the medical bills will be repaid out of the money recovered in the case. An LOP is the most common arrangement for truck accident cases because the lawyer and doctor have more control over the bills. If you were to bill your health insurance, not only do most doctors not accept it, but the insurance company will impose a lien in the case that can make the claim more difficult to settle.
How Much Does a Truck Accident Lawyer Charge?
We handle truck accident cases on a contingency basis. This means that we charge a percentage of the money that we recover for you. In most cases, this fee is 33%. There is no risk to hire us because we only charge a fee if we recover money. Our interests are the same as yours, the more money that we win, the more we get paid and the more you put in your pocket.
