What If I Am Unable To Pay My Medical Bills As They Are Incurred?
The challenge is that you need immediate medical care, but you can’t afford the operations, medications and other medical interventions that you need because the lawsuit that will cover those expenses is still pending. The good news is that many medial care providers will be willing to wait to be paid for their services until the personal injury case is resolved. Just make sure to inform your doctor or other care provider if you don’t have insurance or other means of paying for medical services.
Your Lawyer’s Role In Ensuring Your Medical Providers Get Paid
Our attorneys routinely set aside money from verdicts and settlements in order to pay the doctors and other medical care providers. In most cases, doctors require patients to sign a letter of protection that gives the attorney permission to pay them for their services. The money ultimately comes out of the insurance settlement or verdict money.
