See a Accident Physician ASAP
It’s very important to see a North Augusta doctor right away. If you feel no pain, go to the doctor and get checked out. It’s possible you have a delayed injury that is covered up by adrenaline and endorphins in your body. You could be hurt and not know if in the days or hours after your auto crash.
Going to the ER will help with a personal injury case. However, it does not provide the needed documentation to prove injury.
Several different types of liens to help you get the medical treatment you need. Liens offer a way for you to visit a clinic, without breaking your wallet. Furthermore, we have listed a few ways for which liens work.
A medical lien means you can see a doctor, and they hold the bill. The North Augusta doctor will get paid after your injury case gets settled. He can file it with the court. It is a contract between you and the doctor. You are telling him you will pay him for his medical services when your case is settled. The only downside, however, Nonpayment may result in legal action taken against you. Your cost of your case was essentially put on hold until you receive your funds.
The is a agreement, if you will, between your treating clinic and your attorney. It is a document that is signed by both. The attorney promises to pay your medical expense out of any monies recovered in your case. Again, the cost of your care is not paid up front, but rather in the end. Insurance companies use this sometimes to claim the patient (you) never paid for any of your medical care. When the case settles the treating clinic will be paid out of the proceeds.
Can you negotiate doctors bills
The bills in your case can be negotiated. This is one thing I did when I worked for attorneys. In some instances, the treating clinic may inflate cost. They may do this for several reasons. But, the main reason is because they know there bills will get cut come settlement time. Your attorney will do this for you. However, if you don’t retain an attorney, you may be doing this yourself. If you have received an offer from the at fault insurance company, make sure it’s fair.
Settlement for medical
Before you accept anything, you need to make sure it will cover all your medical expenses. Most patients think they should get thousands of dollars in settlements; this just is not the case. Your medical should be covered, and maybe, you get some money in your pocket. That is the brutal truth. An accident attorney is not going to tell you this because he wants one third of what you get. However, in some instances he is worth every penny.
We certainly are not telling you to not get an attorney. However, if you need one, they can be very helpful. Furthermore, in the event you need advice on a settlement, you can speak with a reputable attorney and he should give you free advice.
Treatment that was not necessary may not be paid. If you visit a clinic that is running all sorts of test that are not needed, they may not be paid in the end. This type of practice is not just limited to South Carolina, it happens all over. It might occur in states that have mandatory pip. Some clinics want to try and use up all your pip, but leave you in the end with useless treatment. And, still in pain from the accident.
You can get a good idea of unnecessary treatment if your bill is 10k and you went to a chiropractor for some adjustments. Nevertheless, this type of billing unfortunately happens quite often. However, if you seek treatment with the right doctor, this should not be an issue. If you are having issues with your current doctor, contact us.
