The other person's insurance company is not obligated to pay your medical bills "as you go." This means that you or your health insurance company are responsible for paying your medical providers as services are rendered. However, the medical bills are part of your claim against the at-fault party and their insurance company moving forward. Once a settlement or resolution is made with the at-fault insurance company, your medical bills should be part of that resolution. An experienced personal injury lawyer should make sure your medical bills are accounted for in any settlement.
If you have a maritime case, your employer may be responsible for paying your ongoing medical bills.
