If you’re in the midst of pursuing a personal injury case, you may require a medical examination to appraise the extent and severity of your injuries. This may present a problem. Paying medical bills can be a struggle for people without insurance or with limited or low-quality insurance. This is before one even considers the lost wages and other difficulties that one may endure in the wake of an injury. This is where medical liens may be helpful. Through an agreement with a trusted doctor, your attorney may be able to secure top-notch care at no immediate cost to you.

In the context of a personal injury case; a medical lien is a type of debt that allows healthcare providers to be reimbursed for the cost of your care from the proceeds of your settlement. In most cases, you will be required to resolve the lien before you can receive your settlement funds. Your attorney will deal with a doctor with whom he or she is well-acquainted. They will likely negotiate the cost of services down before sending their client to an examination. Then, after the resolution of your case, the lien can be resolved from your settlement. The remainder will then be freed to enter your pocket.
