Yes, You Can Recover Damages Even if All Your Medical Bills Were Paid by Medicare

Yes, You Can Recover Damages Even if All Your Medical Bills Were Paid by Medicare.

Even if your medical bills are covered by Medicare, Indiana law says that you can recover for pain and suffering the overall effect your injury has had upon the quality of your life.

Don't assume just because medical bills were paid, that you cannot seek full compensation for your slip and fall injuries.

In fact, Medicare usually pays a reduced rate on your medical bills compared to an uninsured person.

Indiana law in the case of Stanley v. Walker allowed defense lawyers to present evidence of the reduced rates to a jury.

But, Indiana law also recently ruled that the injured slip and fall victim and her attorney also gets to present evidence of the full amount that was chaged -- before write-offs -- so that they jury can decide what is fair compensation for the injuries suffered.

We can help explain the current laws and whether your case will be subject to them.
