The four main categories San Francisco Personal Injury Attorney Sally Morin talks about were health insurance coverage, med-pay auto insurance coverage, cash payments, and now San Francisco Personal Injury Attorney Sally Morin going to elaborate on the fourth category, liens. What a lien is, is it’s 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, sort of, taken a risk because you’re 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 is also a 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.
