I can’t pay for my medical bills, but I intend on pursuing legal action for compensation. Is this allowed?
In short, the answer to this question rests with a person’s medical care provider. Some hospitals and doctors will allow patients injured due to someone else’s negligence to withhold payment until their legal proceedings are complete. Others may not. However, an attorney may be able to better explain the situation to a medical care provider and work out a solution to help those without the financial means to cover injury costs presently.
