Who will pay my medical expenses?
In Colorado, the at-fault party is ultimately responsible for paying your medical expenses. In other words, the manufacturer, designer or the retailer of the defective product will be responsible for your medical expenses. However, you only get to make one claim with the at-fault parties and their insurance companies, and therefore you may need help paying medical expenses before you make your claim. Typically, we will look to your health insurance to cover your medical expenses for any injuries you received as a result of a defective product. If there is no health insurance available to help cover your medical expenses, the attorneys at Bachus & Schanker, LLC will work with you to help you get the medical attention you need by working with health care professionals in your area to provide you medical care through an agreed upon "medical lien" against your future settlement.
