Some of our clients are involved in an accident where there is no medical payments insurance, workers’ compensation or private health insurance. In such cases, your doctor may expect to be paid while the case is pending or at the conclusion of the case. If your doctor agrees to be paid at the conclusion of the case, often, they will require you to agree, in writing, to have us paid indirectly from the proceeds you receive. State law sometimes permits healthcare providers to file a “lien” which must be paid out of the proceeds of your case. If your doctor asks you to sign what is often called a “Lien Letter”, be sure to contact our office. In some cases, it may not be appropriate for you to sign such an agreement.
