Fortunately, many people have health insurance to cover the cost of medical care in the event a person becomes injured due to a vehicular collision or any other incident. However, most health insurance companies have provisions in the policy requiring all medical expenses be paid back in the event of a recovery from the tortfeasor. This practice, called subrogation, will demand 100% repayment of medical costs, from the insurance company, regardless of whether the victim receives any money after payment of medical bills.
It is essential for the victim to retain a lawyer who will help with prosecuting the claim against the tortfeasor, and also represent the victim with negotiating with health insurance companies on any subrogation claims. Without an attorney, the victim may face paying back a substantial amount in medical claims. An attorney has the capacity to greatly reduce or eliminate paying back any monies to the health insurance company through many different tactics.
