If you have been injured, it is imperative that you quickly seek medical help after getting into an accident. Many times you may think that you are not injured, but weeks later will feel the physical repercussions of the accident. Personal injury victims can often seek medical help from a doctor on lien. The doctor will provide treatment for you without collecting money upfront. The most common personal injury cases are auto accidents.
Generally, when you get into an auto accident, the other parties involved are also responsible for your medical bills. However, many times the person at fault may not have insurance and can’t afford to pay for the medical bills. That doesn’t mean that you cannot still seek treatment! If you obviously still need to get medical treatment, then your auto or health insurance will pay for the medical bill or your personal injury attorney can find you a doctor on lien. This ensures that you won’t be paying for your medical bills out-of-pocket or upfront.
If your health insurance provider or auto insurance pays for your car accident injuries and you later receive money through your personal injury settlement, then you must reimburse your insurance company. Your insurance company will have placed a medical lien on your case and this ensures that they will be paid back. The same goes for the doctor on lien. After the case is settled, your attorney will have to first reimburse the doctor for their medical work, before you receive your payout from the insurance settlement.
