Do I still have a viable personal injury claim if my health insurance paid my medical bills?

Yes, you still have a viable personal injury case. You have the right to pursue the full value of your medical treatment (i.e. the actual cost of the treatment) rather than simply your co-pay or deductible. For example, if you had a $3,000 medical bill and your deductible was $500, you can claim the full $3,000 bill when filing a personal injury claim against the other party. However, it is important to understand that if you have employer-provided health insurance, you may be required to pay back a portion to the health insurance company. This can be a complicated topic, so be sure to bring it up with one of our experienced Portsmouth personal injury lawyers during your free, confidential consultation.
