Who pays the medical bills? The truth in a jury trial.

Who pays the medical bills?

Many people, including jurors have misconceptions on “big verdicts”. Often folks think winning a law suit or settlement is like hitting the lottery.

The truth is no one would want the injuries that our clients have in most of our cases for any amount of money.

People often ask: Who pays the medical bills? Do they fall on the public? Does the person suing get paid twice?

When you recover a jury verdict the first thing that happens is that a portion of the money goes to pay medical bills.
