Paying the Ambulance Bill While Awaiting Settlement

The question of how you will pay your ambulance bill after a truck accident is relevant for another vital reason.  The legal process can be lengthy—even if other parties are at fault, you may not receive compensation for months or even years. 

In the meantime, an unpaid ambulance bill can wreak havoc on finances and emotional wellbeing. An overdue bill might accrue late fees and interest, be forwarded to a debt collection agency, and ruin your credit rating. This can quickly evolve into a significant problem, even leading to a lien on your home. Using a subrogation lien against your pending compensation may be possible instead. This defers medical payments, like the ambulance bill, until you receive a settlement from your personal injury case.
