Go see a North Augusta car accident doctor immediately following you car wreck
Delay or gap in medical care is caused from waiting too long to go see a North Augusta doctor after you have been injured in a car wreck. After a North Augusta car accident, you might not feel any pain at all. Adrenaline and some other factors may keep the pain at bay for days, sometimes even weeks. If you wait weeks before you go see a doctor after your accident, you have a huge gap in medical care. 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.
If you can’t afford to go see a doctor, go to the emergency room. After the ER you can find a doctor on this website by entering your zip code in the box on this page or by calling. All the doctors on accidentdoctor.org may work on a medical lien, or attorneys lien.
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 they can treat you with no out of pocket expense. The North Augusta doctor will get paid when you get paid. 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.
Can I use med pay to see a North Augusta doctor
You can use med-pay or medical payments to see any doctor on our website. Med-pay is designed to pay for medical expenses suffered in a car accident. South Carolina does not have any Pip (personal injury protection). Med-pay is usually bought in increments of 1,000.00. This means you can get coverage best suited for your needs and the needs of your family. Med-pay coverage is not very costly and is worth every penny if you ever have to use it. We highly recommend anyone in a non pip state to consider buying Med-pay.
Med pay may cover the following in most states
- Injuries sustained in a car accident, regardless of fault.
- Ambulance Services
- Emergency room visits
- Chiropractic Visits
- Funeral Expenses
