Personal Injury Lawyer Sally Morin concludes a video series about the ways that you can cover your medical expenses when you are involved in a personal injury case.

The four main categories I spoke about were health insurance coverage, med-pay auto insurance coverage, cash payments, and now I’m going to elaborate on the fourth category, liens.

A lien is an agreement between you and the medical provider that you will pay the medical provider for the services at the conclusion of your case. It is similar to a contingency fee that you will pay your lawyer at the end of your personal injury case. The medical provider is taking a sort of risk, because they are waiting until the end of your case.

Typically you’re going to sign something with them that obligates you to pay them regardless of what you recover from the third party. There is a risk here because if you don’t win your case you still have to pay for your medical expenses. But it is also great in that you don’t have to come out of your pocket to pay the medical provider and they are willing to wait to get paid until the case is resolved. Sometimes this is something that the lawyer can work out with the provider and that way you don’t have to come out of your pocket.

Accident Client

“Last March, my partner was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. During this difficult time of healing, we knew that bills were going to pile up and his was going to be a long process. After looking at multiple law firms, we knew that Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers was going to be the best place to work with. Lauren and her team were patient, supportive and caring during his difficult time. His schedule was always busy with work and doctor appointments that his main source of communication was through email. Lauren and her team made it to where he didn’t have to worry about anything but just sending over the paper work he got from the hospital, and other bill collectors involving his incident and they worried about the rest.

Because of all their help my partner Aaron, was able to heal with less worries on his shoulders. By end of December, everything was settled and we were pleased with the results. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Lauren & the Sally Morin team. If you’re looking for a law firm for your incident, I’d definitely look at this law firm.”
