If you’re injured in a slip and fall accident, it depends on what party is responsible regarding payment of your medical bills
If the slip and fall was your fault, then you’re responsible for your medical bills
If it was the fault of the property owner, then they’re responsible. Regardless, if you have private medical coverage, your private medical insurance should pay for your medical bills
It is important to remember that if payments are made by your private insurance, they may have a lien or a right to recovery against you and any recovery you make for what that private medical insurance pays out
Ultimately, that lien can be made part of your claim against the person responsible for the condition that led you to fall and become injured. Again, if you have a question about that, you should really consult a New Jersey attorney
