I have clients ask me, why do I have to use my health insurance? Why do I have to use my car insurance? Well, the answer is the at fault insurance is not going to pay for your medical expenses. They’re not going to pay for your losses until they get a full and final release. So in the meantime, you need to use.
Your health insurance and you need to use your auto insurance if you have medical payments coverage to help pay for your medical care from the time of the crash until the settlement at the time of settlement, that’s a whole different question because your health insurance, your auto insurance is going to have what’s called a subrogated interest and they’ll get paid from the at fault party. So that’s something that we can talk about later on, where we use the collateral source rule and the made whole doctrine and those rules and doctrines in Wisconsin to get as much money as we can for you. In the end, it’s going to be best if you do use your health insurance.
It’ll be best if you do notify your insurance.
