Wondering who pays medical expenses from a car accident while the case is pending?  When you’re injured in a car accident, your PIP coverage will cover the initial $10,000 of medical expenses, or more, if you had chosen to purchase an auto insurance policy with more coverage. Once your PIP coverage is exhausted, typically your health insurance will be the next line of payment for expenses. Your personal injury lawyer will work to make sure both you and your health insurance company receive reimbursement for the medical costs associated with the accident.
