Auto Accident Settlement Without Medical Bills?

I was in an auto accident where I got rear ended and the other driver's insurance admitted fault. I am claiming that I got hurt. I'm wondering if I can get settlement compensation without medical bills? Thanks.

ANSWER for "Auto Accident Settlement Without Medical Bills?":

Lu:

Unless you have suffered injuries which require medical attention, it will be virtually impossible to receive settlement compensation.

Of course if you think your injuries may require medical attention in the near future you would be well advised to seek medical care immediately.

If you will require future additional medical treatment you will then be able to contact the at-fault driver and her insurance company to demand compensation for your medical bills, any out of pocket expenses related to your injuries and additional money for Pain and Suffering.

The above is general information. Laws change frequently, and across jurisdictions. You should get a personalized case evaluation from an attorney licensed in your state. Find a local attorney to give you a free case review here, or call (888) 647-2490.
