It is often the little things that make a big difference in a personal injury case. When you go to any doctor’s office, one of their first questions will be “Do you have medical insurance for your personal injury accident?”
If you have been referred to a doctor or chiropractor by a personal injury attorney, that doctor or chiropractor has agreed in advance to accept your case on a lien basis. That means that the medical provider will be paid out of your personal injury settlement and by signing that personal injury lien, you and your personal injury lawyer have guaranteed payment to the doctor when your personal injury case is resolved.
Accident victims and their personal injury lawyers must wait for their settlement, award or judgment before receiving financial compensation from insurance companies. So should the medical provider but that is not always the case, even though the medical provider has agreed to provide medical or chiropractic services on a personal injury lien.
