If someone has been in an accident and they're hurt, but don't have health insurance what can they do? David Greene from Greene and Phillips stopped by Studio10 to talk about this issue. Below is a list of some of the questions and answers discussed on the show.
If you are hurt in an accident, but don't have health insurance, what is the first thing you should do?
First thing they need to do is probably go to the emergency room. State law says that no hospital may deny you coverage because you don't have insurance. Hiring a personal injury attorney can help too. We have ways to get you the medical help you need with no upfront costs. Through a Letter of Protect or third party companies that offer insurance like services we can make sure you get the quality care and procedures you need without having to worry about the bill.
What is a Letter of Protect and how does it help?
As an established law firm we've been dealing and developing relationships with medical providers throughout the the region. The letter of protect is a document stating that the medical provider will be paid out of your settlement
How does having a lawyer make a difference?
Having a lawyer makes a tremendous difference because we can help make sure you get all the treatment you need without you having to make the deals with the hospital and insurance company.
Does it matter what type of lawyer you get?
It's likely only personal injury lawyers who have years of experience will be able to offer you a service like this.
