It is critical you see a Doctor that treats Car Wreck Injuries
Accident doctors are doctors who will treat you and bill your auto insurance company, a medical lien, or attorney’s lien. These doctors are setup for that type of billing. Most, not all, primary health doctors will not accept Accident injury patients. Strangely enough they usually will never bill the insurance for medical care. Even so, finding a Car accident doctor can be a big hassle in some areas.
We list auto accident doctors, car wreck doctors, medical & attorney lien doctors, and doctors who accept auto insurance on our website. If you have been injured and need to find a physician, search our database, if we do not have one listed contact us immediately and we will find you one.
After you have been injured in an Car accident, the last thing you need to worry about is how your medical care is going to be paid. For this reason you need to find a doctor. Accident Doctors can treat you under a medical or attorney’s lien. Because of this, you can concentrate on your recovery and not worry about medical bills. We are ready to help you in the event you have been injured in a Car accident, so that all you have to do is call.
A medical lien is a guarantee of payment. After you are finished treating, you will pay for the medical treatment you received. An attorney’s lien is a guarantee that the doctor will pay for medical care after he receives a settlement from the insurance company.
Attorney’s liens may be used in states which offer no pip. A personal injury attorney will guarantee payment for medical care once the case is settled. A medical lien is where you, the injured party has no attorney and will pay for your medical care when you settle with the at fault insurance company. You can still treat as well under med pay.
Doctors who bill the insurance company directly a considered third party. Many times people will go see their Pc to get medical care after an auto accident only to find they don’t deal with accident injuries. However, this does not mean they won’t treat you; they just want to be paid out of pocket. Accident victims along with the rest of us simply cannot afford to do this in the first place. Most PC’s are set up to bill Health insurance, not the Car insurance. This is one of the reasons why they won’t accept third party billing. For this reason, most we have will bill third party insurance or work on a medical lien. This means you can get the treatment you need and not have to worry about the medical bills.
Third party Billing is nothing more than your medical care being billed directly to the insurance carrier. The doctor submits the bills just like he would for health insurance. The company send them a check directly for the services performed on you. In some states this is the way its done, and in others they will not bill this way. This is dependant on the laws in a particular state and if they favor this type of billing. Doctors listed here may or maynot bill third party.
If you do not see your company or the at fault insurance company listed. This does not mean we cannot help you. We have listed some of the most popular insurance carriers
PIP or personal injury protection
Personal injury protection is mandatory insurance in some states. Pip will cover you and anyone in your car for injuries sustained. Pip will also cover injuries you or your passengers sustained from accidents where you were cited or at fault. Incidentally, your medical professional will bill the pip directly and you need not worry about the medical bills. However, Personal injury protection will only pay the benefit amount and no more, per person. In some states you may have a time limit to see a injury physician such as 14 days. In other states, you may have up to two years to file a medical claim.
Med Pay or Medical payments
Many accident victims have no idea what med pay is. In fact, the insurance company may not even tell you about it when you purchase your Car insurance. Med pay is very similar to Pip, however you get to set the benefit amount. This benefit can range from 500.00 all the way to 100,000 dollars. Med pay will cover you, and any passengers in your car. However, the benefit amount is per person, not per accident.
We encourage everyone to examine there policy. Determine if the limits are right for you and your family. Med pay is cheap insurance, when you really need it, you will be glad you have it. Med Pay is not mandatory, it is something you have to ask for. It is highly recommend to get Med Pay in a non Pip state. The cost of med pay do not warrant you not having it
Pip or Med pay was designed to help injured parties get the medical care they need in the event of a vehicle crash, no matter who was at fault for the accident. In other words, you and anyone in your car may be entitled to free medical care after Car accident. For this reason the physician will bill the insurance company and do the necessary paperwork. If you have been in an accident and were at fault and are injured, always call the doctor. Accidents happen, just because you were at fault does not mean you have to suffer.
Pip is available in some states as an add on to the current insurance you already have. For this reason you can just add it to your existing policy. However, this coverage is not mandatory, it is just optional. States that offer this type of coverage are South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. Still, in some states you may have to opt out of this coverage.
There is nothing wrong with trying to see your PC. The issue with seeing your pc after a car wreck is they may not know how to treat these injuries. You see your PC for things like the flu or if you are sick, but not for car accident injuries. Your PC may have suggestions. They may even send you out for PT. This is a good thing, but then comes to the documentation of your injury. These types of doctors just are not set up for this. They certainly won’t do third party billing or an attorney’s lien. We have found that most PC’s wont nothing to do with an attorney or a personal injury case.
Medical Docs are critical for proving a personal injury case. If you don’t have any visits or documentation, you may not even have a personal injury case. Accident Doctor is here to help injured folks find the right medical care. You owe it to yourself and your family to at least gets medical care from someone who knows exactly what they are doing when it comes to car wrecks and injuries. Remember, not all doctors can treat these types of injuries. Your primary care physician is great at treating you for cuts, bruises, broken bones. However, you throw an auto accident at them, and the majority of them won’t even see you.
Another good idea to see an accident doctor within 14 days in order for the bills to paid through insurance. However, the number of days will vary from state to state. As a matter of fact, if you wait to see one, you may find yourself paying the bills. It’s even better to find one within 72 hours of the accident. 14 days is a limit that in some states that the PIP will not pay. If you delay your medical care or treatment any length of time, you could find yourself in trouble. In Fact, a delay in medical care could cost you thousands of dollars. As a result of your injury, you may want to hire a personal injury attorney. Furthermore, if you have large gaps in medical care or wait too long to see a Car accident doctor, you may not receive a settlement at all. Make sure to see an auto accident doctor as soon as possible after you have been injured in a car wreck.
