        They Said (in writing) They Would Pay My Medical Bills

        150 150 Clifford Horwitz

        Question:

        I stepped in a hole at a restaurant parking lot in Effingham, IL injuring my hand. They agreed in writing to pay my medical bills associated with the injury. I just received a bill from the doctor that they didn’t pay it & now it’s in collection. The accident was June 2005. What do I do now?

        South Holland, IL

        Answer:

        If it is only a bill you are concerned about, you can file a small claims court, like the People’s Court on T.V. In order to prevail, you would have to demonstrate one of two things:

        1. That defendant knew or should have known of the hole in question and it was a place where customers were supposed or reasonably could be foreseen to walk  OR
        2. That Defendant has MPC medical payment coverage. It is insurance coverage that pays medical bills.
