What are the differences between how I can recover medical costs in Virginia and North Carolina? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

  Virginia allows you to recover the face value of your medical costs in civil court. But North Carolina has changed some of the rules about this. If you have health insurance, usually you only can recover the amount of medical costs that you paid and covered by the health insurance together with any of the out of pocket costs you paid. So, if there is insurance, less than the face value of the bills may be recovered.
