Ambulance Ride After Car Accident

Does Car Insurance Cover Ambulance Rides?

In general, most car insurance will contribute to covering the costs of an ambulance. The types of coverage that generally apply are:  

  • The Other Driver’s Liability Coverage: If the other driver caused the accident, then their liability coverage should cover your ambulance ride after car accident.  
  • Uninsured Motorist Coverage: If the at-fault driver does not have car insurance, Arizona law provides you may have a minimum of $15,000 in coverage for uninsured motorist coverage from your own insurance.  
  • Medical Payment Policy: This policy is your own policy and it can cover medical bills of up to $5,000 and if you purchased additional coverage, up to $25,000.00 in coverage.

It is important to note that different types of coverage can overlap with one another. For example, if the other driver has $10,000 in liability coverage, and you have $15,000 in uninsured motorist coverage, and you get into an accident with $15,000 worth of medical bills, the other driver will pay $10,000 and your uninsured motorist coverage will pay the other $5,000.  

Who Is Responsible for the Medical and Transportation Bill in a Car Accident?

If you are in a car accident that is not your fault, the other driver’s insurance company is responsible for paying your medical bills, including the transportation bill. The other driver’s insurance, however, won’t pay for every single medical bill. Your option then is to get a settlement, which means that you need to find lawyers to represent you in court in order for you to get a certain amount of money for any bills or injuries that you have sustained. It’s no secret that settlements can take a while, though, and doctors want to be paid right away.  

If this is the case, your health insurance should step in and pay. You should submit any doctor or transportation bills to them so that they can either pay them or reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses.  

Should I Take an Ambulance After a Car Accident?

First, it’s important to say that you may not have the option to take an ambulance – if your injuries are severe enough, you may be put into an ambulance regardless of your opinion on the matter. However, if you are injured but still conscious, a paramedic may ask if you want to take an ambulance ride to the hospital. If that is the case, some people may begin to think about costs, their car, or any number of other things.

While it is not our place to tell you whether or not you should take an ambulance ride after car accident, it is important to put your health first. If the paramedics recommend youambulance ride after car accident, or if you are injured at all, we recommend you ride in an ambulance. Your material possessions, like your car, can be sorted out once your injuries are tended to.  

Some common injuries that you may need ambulance ride after car accident for are:

When Should You Go to the ER After a Car Accident?

Generally, if you refuse ambulance ride after car accident, you should go to the ER as soon as possible after a car accident. You’ll want to seek treatment as soon as possible because you may have delayed pain and/or symptoms of a much more serious injury. The sooner you get to the ER, the sooner you can be treated, and the higher your chances of full recovery are. Of course, it goes without saying that if you take an ambulance to the ER, you will get there faster than if you decide to take yourself.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!
