In Texas, when someone is seriously injured, hospitals are required to provide medical treatment, regardless of the individual’s ability to pay. When emergency medical providers treat someone who is injured due to another’s negligence, they are allowed to file a personal injury lien (a.k.a. hospital lien) for medical bills that the victim cannot pay.
If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, you are likely entitled to recover damages. These may include medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for emotional pain and suffering.
When a drunk driver causes an accident that leaves one or more victims hurt or suffering or results in other damages, he or she is subject to legal consequences on both a criminal and civil level.
Auto insurance companies have a reputation for being shrouded in secrecy in terms of their methods of assessment, adjustment, and negotiation. As a policyholder, you pay your premium expecting that if and when the time comes, you’ll be supported based on the terms of your policy.
