Understanding a Personal Injury Lien

When an individual is involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are many factors that can become stress inducers. One of the issues that always surfaces is seeking out medical treatment. For those individuals not at fault, it can be very frustrating to come out of pocket for medical expenses. At this stage of the claims process, individuals are recommended to seek out the help of a personal injury attorney. Attorneys are able to work on behalf of their client and get them medical treatment without any up-front costs. In order to receive this type of treatment, an attorney will sign a personal injury lien with the doctor or medical facility treating their client. The doctor will then prescribe a course of treatment for the attorney’s client and provide the necessary resources in order to get the client back to full health. The doctors who work on a personal injury lien sacrifice their time and efforts for the greater good of their patients. Not all doctors will accept this type of lien work so it is important to retain the services of a personal injury attorney who will add credibility to your claim and request for treatment.

Although working on a personal injury lien is a risk that doctors take, compensation will occur once the settlement of case has been received by the retained attorney. Doctors and attorneys know the strength of the case will depend heavily on the amount of treatment needed by the patient and the report(s) written based on recovery. Personal injury lien treatment needs to be documented at all stages until the client has completed the full course of treatment. Some paperwork will be involved in the process so attorneys and doctors work closely during the entire treatment process. Because of the unpredictability of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) attorneys continually search out these types of doctors who will be willing to treat solely on a personal injury lien so their client(s) have the least frustrating experience possible. These doctors can be extremely hard to find, especially when their specialty becomes very rare. Power Liens has become a resource for both doctors and attorneys to network with each other.
