Paying Car Bill After an Accident
A car accident can leave you injured, unable to work, and with a growing pile of bills as you try to recover. In addition to the medical bills from your injuries and the monthly bills of rent and utilities, there is the cost of repairing and maintaining your car after being involved in a car accident. Fortunately, if your accident was caused by the negligence of another person, you may be eligible for pre-settlement funding through USClaims to help you cover your bills while your case is pending.
Here are some of the bills you may be facing after a serious wreck. Call us to learn more about how we can help.
Car accidents often result in significant repair bills, and even relatively minor body damage may total out an older vehicle. A negligent driver who causes an accident is legally obligated to pay for the property damage they caused, meaning the driver’s insurance must pay to have your vehicle repaired or replaced. Your insurance company does not even need to become involved in the claim if the other driver’s insurance company accepts liability for the accident and agrees to the repairs. Unfortunately, in an effort to reduce the value of your claim, car insurance companies sometimes assert that the victim was partly, or even entirely, at fault for the accident. In such a case, they might not be willing to pay for the repairs to your vehicle.
Unfortunately, it could take months, or even years, before a car accident settlement is agreed on or a jury awards you for your property damage. In the meantime, you may have to pay your own repair bills in order to have a working vehicle that can take you to your job or doctor appointments for the injuries you sustained in the accident.
A Rental Car
While your car is in the shop, you may need to get a rental vehicle to get from place to place. Fortunately, if your accident was someone else’s fault, his or her insurance will cover the cost of your rental. That said, you will have to pay for the costs of your rental out of pocket until your case is resolved.
Your Monthly Payment on Your Damaged Vehicle
If your car is not paid off, you will still need to make your monthly payments, even if the vehicle is in the shop. These payments can be a real financial challenge for car accident victims, especially those unable to work due to their injuries. In some cases, you may even need to sell your car in order to avoid repossession or negative marks on your credit.
