To ensure that our clients feel comfortable approaching us at any time of the day or night, we maintain an open door policy and are always available for an in-depth, no-obligation consultation that assesses your case and can help you determine the best course of action to take.

All Kinds of Claims: Fender Benders to Wrongful Death

No claim is too big or small for our seasoned legal team. If you’ve been involved in a relatively minor accident and simply need to negotiate a fair, efficient insurance settlement, we deal directly with your insurance company to expedite the process. If your case is more serious or complex, we handle every interaction with medical providers, insurance firms, fellow parties to the accident, and other actors who could affect its outcome.

We’re Always on Your Side

Throughout every step of the process, it’s important to remember that we’re always on your side. Unlike some law firms that handle personal injury law, we never advocate on behalf of insurance companies. Our sole priority is the welfare of the people of northeastern Wisconsin, and not the profit margins of insurers in Chicago or New York.

Car and Truck Accident Medical Bills

Don’t let your credit be ruined because someone decided to ignore the Rules of the Road and cause a vehicle crash.

Wisconsin law allows for medical expense coverage on auto policies. It is often called MedPay coverage. It is similar to no fault insurance, and it may be called different names in other states like “PIP” insurance. This article is about Wisconsin MedPay. This coverage is no longer mandatory, but it is still an option on most vehicle insurance policies. It is meant to cover an insured for medical bills if they result from a car, truck, motorcycle or other vehicle crash. It is often helpful in obtaining payment for personal injury medical bills, especially if the injured victim does not have health insurance.

Many injured people who have been in a car wreck think the person at fault or their insurance company will start paying for the injured’s medical expenses, but that is simply not true. The liable insurance company often pays nothing until there has been a complete settlement or even a jury trial verdict. Thus, the injured is left on their own to get their bills paid. It used to be much easier because you could just submit bills to your own company, up to the limit of coverage, and possibly sign an authorization so your company could get your medical records. Then they pay the bills.

Unfortunately it has become all to common for even the most reliable companies to make it very very difficult to get bills paid. Now, many companies are creating hurdles that delay payment of medical bills for months. They may require you to submit special forms that are not easily provided, or obtain and send in your own records, or submit to a doctor hired by an insurence company to determine of the bills should be paid. It is truly unbelieveable the lengths injured victims mudt go through just to get bills paid by their own company!

If you have been injured in an auto or other vehicle crash or wreck, call an experienced personal injury attorney right away. You can call Hammett, Bellin & Oswald, LLC to discuss medical bills and other issues with no obligation. We spend time just about every day trying to make sure bills get paid. The obvious danger is that while your insurance delays payment, the medical providers get fed up and send your bills to collection which could then end up on your credit report. There are still some laws in effect that we can use to assist in the payment or take action against the insurance company. We at Hammett, Bellin & Oswald, LLC help injured victims from Outagamie County, Winnebago County, Waupaca County, Calumet County, Brown County, Shawano County, Door County, Marinette County, Fond du Lac County and from throughout Wisconsin on a daily basis.
