Who is responsible for the ambulance and hospital bills when injured at a restaurant? They admit 100% fault.
Answer: The at-fault party is responsible for the injured person’s medical bills. When the injury takes place at the premises of another (a house, restaurant, business), the property owner/business operator may also have some Medical Payment coverage.
This is an amount of coverage specifically designed to cover medical bills for someone injured on site, regardless of who is at fault for the injury.
Any other payments from the property owner/business operator would come from their liability coverage, which means they need to accept fault or be proven at fault.
