Has this guy found a way to not pay medical bills, if so, what is it? (in the USA)

A friend of my parents had an accident while driving his cargo truck (self employed as truck driver, during work hours). He has outrageous medical bills pending, and has visited a lawyer since he has no medical insurance.
Yesterday during a visit, he told my parents that the lawyer told him not to worry, he was sure he wouldn't have to pay a dime. We were super impressed, and I assumed that he meant he was filing for bankruptcy. Only I just found out he isn't. How did he manage?
We live in VA. He does not own his house, but he makes about 70k/year driving, so he's not low income (I think). Google has not given me any answers other than bankruptcy, so I'm confused, but I don't want to ask him the details of his financial situation.
About the accident - there wasn't anyone else involved, so someone else's insurance isn't a possible source, either.
