Many Americans lack health insurance because insurance is either unavailable or it is too expensive. Insurance is important for Americans who need help paying medical bills in case of personal injury, and with that in mind, the U.S. government has put a plan in motion that would provide universal health care for all Americans.
Our firm’s San Diego personal injury lawyers believe that every American is entitled to health insurance. Basic health insurance will help get medical bills paid in the event of a personal injury that requires medical attention or care.
For instance, a car accident can cause personal injury like whiplash or traumatic brain injuries like concussions or bleeding in the brain (subdural hematoma). Those personal injuries can lead to permanent damage or wrongful death.
Does everyone believe universal health care is a good idea? Apparently, the American Medical Association (A.M.A.) does not believe so.
The AMA has told Congress it will oppose creation of a government-sponsored insurance plan. The group does not believe creating a public health insurance option for non-disabled people under 65 is the best way to expand health insurance coverage and lower costs.
All Americans are entitled to some kind of health care. When personal injury happens, it is vital that Americans receive medical care to treat any immediate problems before they become more serious personal injuries or lead to wrongful death.
Our personal injury attorneys in San Diego know how important it is to have health insurance if personal injury leads to high medical bill costs. An uninsured person who suffers from personal injury has two large problems: their personal injury affects their life negatively, and not being able to pay medical bills makes a bad situation worse.
If the American Medical Association is really in the business of caring for Americans, then they should be the biggest supporters of universal health care.
