One of the most common complaints received from clients concerns unpaid medical bills while a case is pending.
I remind clients that until and unless you prove your case of negligence against a wrongdoer in a court of law, the medical treaters have a right to be paid for the medical services they provided you now. This includes the right to seek collection of the unpaid medical expenses associated with your treatment.
Remember, those medical professionals provided a service — treatment of your injuries. And they were not a participant in the incident that caused your injuries. Consequently, they have a contractual right to seek payment for their services despite the fact that your injuries were caused by the negligence of somebody else.
