Who Pays My Medical Bills After A Car Accident If I Do Not Have Car Insurance?

WHO PAYS MY MEDICAL BILLS AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT IF I DO NOT HAVE CAR INSURANCE?It can be unsettling to be injured in a car accident without having any car insurance or health insurance.  “Who pays my medical bills after a car accident if I do not have car insurance” or “how can I afford my treatment if I have no insurance” are common and justifiable concerns. While Florida law requires drivers operating vehicles to carry Personal Injury Protection (“PIP” or “No-Fault”) insurance, it does not require everyone to carry it.  If you do not have a vehicle that you operate on Florida’s roadways, you are not required to carry car insurance.  This would make sense, right?  If you do not own a vehicle, why should you have to carry car insurance? However, one of the benefits of car insurance is that required PIP insurance helps pay for medical bills someone incurs as a result of the crash.  What happens when you are hit by a car and you do not have insurance?  Are you out of luck?  Do you have to pay for your own medical bills?  These are the questions that passengers, pedestrians, or cyclists may ask themselves.
