Right now you have a lot to worry about. If you had to prioritize everything that is on your mind, then the medical expenses might not be on your list of top three concerns. However, you are right to ask this question, because if you ignore the bills and refuse to deal with them, then the unpaid medical bills may move to the top of your list of problems.
Don’t Let the Medical Bills Become a Problem
If your husband did not die right away then he likely incurred medical expenses between the time of his motorcycle accident and the time of his death. These medical expenses were a direct result of the motorcycle crash and were incurred because doctors had the intent to either help him survive or relieve his pain. Your husband’s medical insurance may have covered some of these costs. However, your husband may have had outstanding copayments or deductibles, things that were simply not covered by his plan, or he may have not been insured at the time of his death. Accordingly, his estate is now stuck with the bills.
A wrongful death lawsuit can help protect the value of the estate and the ultimate payment to the estate’s beneficiaries. If you file a wrongful death case, then the other driver’s insurance company may be responsible for paying your medical costs.
