How do I get my medical bills paid if I am injured in a slip and fall accident in NJ?

  • 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
