When My Case is Over How Will My Doctors Get Paid?

June 11, 2021 / 3:04 pm

Most lawyers have a policy of withholding money from the settlement, court award or verdict to pay those doctors and medical facilities that are willing to wait to be paid when the case is settled. Many doctors and medical facilities require that the patient/client request a letter of protection from your attorney. This ensures that your attorney will withhold enough money from your disbursement to pay medical bills directly to the doctor or medical facilities when and if settlement funds are received. These bills are ultimately your responsibility. Therefore, any medical bills known to your attorney will be deducted after the calculation of the contingency fee owed your attorney at the end of the case.
