What is a Medical Lien? | Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys | Personal Injury FAQs
Last week I received a call from an injured victim who said, I'm hurting. Now I need to see a doctor, but I don't have insurance. How can you help? I told her easy. We can work with your medical providers using what's known as a medical lien. When you are represented by a trusted attorney, medical providers will sign a document, granting them the right to payment once your case is settled. This lien allows you to treat first and pay later. Think of it almost like a barter, or credit even each visit to the doctor. They create a bill for your file, and then they wait. They don't bill you directly, they don't send your account to collections. Although you are still responsible for these bills, the balance only becomes due at the end of your case once the insurance company is ready to settle your claim. This option of using a lien helps people who don't have health insurance, or haven't met a high health insurance deductible or even in situations where treating with the physician or therapist out of network medical liens allow you to get the treatment that you need. If you don't get the medical care that you need. No matter how severe your injuries are. Your case is worth very little it no out of pocket costs to you. Call us today for a no risk consultation so that we can tell you how we can add value to your personal injury claim. You get paid because you're hurt not just because you were hit. Simply put, if you don't get paid, we don't get paid. Contact Greathouse Trial Law to discuss your case today.
