Imagine receiving severe injuries due to another person’s illegal or irresponsible actions and then facing the costs on your own. Maybe insurance can help cover some of the costs, but what about the remainder of the medical bills? If you need a better system for managing your financial situation, or if you want to reduce the overall cost of your medical bills, are there any steps you can take? Do you need to handle all of these losses and stressors alone?
If you are facing high medical bills following an accident that wasn’t your fault, we want you to know that you may not need to face it alone. The legal team from Mott & Moffett has extensive experience in personal injury law, including great ways to handle medical costs for our clients. Our clients trust us to work hard toward fantastic results, including bringing victims the compensation they deserve. This may also help speed up the recovery timeline. We have access to several helpful resources and strategies that may be useful during your lawsuit.
What Is a Medical Lien?
One of the ways a lawyer can help you reduce your medical costs is by establishing a medical lien. A medical lien is generally an agreement between a lawyer and a medical provider or hospital regarding medical bill payments. The medical provider agrees to wait for payments until an accident victim wins their case and receives compensation for their losses.
In some cases, lawyers will agree to pay for the bills in lawsuits that they don’t win. We recommend speaking with your attorney for more information about this, as the specific details may vary from lawyer to lawyer.
How Do You Get a Medical Lien in Texas?
You may receive a medical lien in Texas by working with a lawyer. In particular, you will need to address your medical concerns with your personal injury attorney, and your lawyer can begin organizing the lien. While not all hospitals will necessarily accept medical liens negotiated with all lawyers, many are happy to accept them.
If you need help finding a hospital or another medical provider that will accept medical lien agreements, we suggest you work with a lawyer. In many cases, personal injury lawyers work directly with medical care providers and have built up a good rapport. This means your attorney may provide you with referrals to trustworthy medical practitioners if you ask.
What Other Steps Should You Take After Receiving Injuries?
If you are facing injuries from an accident at another person’s hands, we suggest you follow these steps:
Keep Up With Your Treatment Plan
We strongly recommend you keep up with your medical care practitioner’s treatment plan. If you haven’t already received medical care, please seek health care and attention as soon as possible. This is essential to receiving compensation during legal proceedings and making a complete recovery.
Retain a Personal Injury Lawyer for Help
If you don’t already have a lawyer handling your personal injury case, we suggest you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer can help you get a medical lien, receive adequate compensation, and reduce the stress levels you would ordinarily face during the legal process.
Please refrain from representing yourself during legal matters, as there is a high probability that you will misrepresent yourself and receive less compensation than you should. A lawyer is much more likely to help you win your case and get the recovery you need. Additionally, personal injury lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay unless you win your case.
