Do I still have a claim for damages if my health insurance paid my medical bills?


Yes. In a personal injury case, the prevailing injured party is entitled to recover the full value of their medical treatment, which is the actual cost of the treatments, not just their out of pocket expenses like co-pays and deductibles.  

In many instances, insurance carriers will attempt to reduce an injury victim’s damages by offering to only pay their out-of-pocket expenses, which leaves the injured person less than whole. It is important to know your rights before agreeing to any settlement with an insurance company.
