After being injured in an auto accident, medical bills can start to pile up. If you’re unable to make payments on those bills then your credit score can be negatively impacted.
Having bad credit can make it more difficult to get an auto or home loan. It can increase your insurance rates on things like your car or home. Additionally, it could cost you to lose out on future employment opportunities if a potential employer were to run a credit check that didn’t meet their expectations or hiring criteria.
To help avoid credit issues after a car wreck we can help you find medical treatment that will not affect your credit while your case is pending, and that can be paid for out of your settlement. This means you wouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for your medical bills until you receive your compensation. We fight hard to make sure that a bad driver’s negligence doesn’t hurt your financial future.
