If you have ever been involved in a personal injury lawsuit, you know how overwhelming and costly it can be to manage medical expenses while awaiting the resolution of your claim. Fortunately, a helpful legal tool known as a Letter of Protection (LOP) can alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with obtaining necessary medical treatment.
A Letter of Protection is a legal document that guarantees medical providers they will be paid from the settlement or verdict of a personal injury case. In essence, a LOP allows injured individuals to receive the medical treatment they need without paying for it upfront out of their own pocket. Instead, the medical bills are deferred until the personal injury case concludes.
The LOP acts as a lien on the potential settlement or jury award, ensuring that the medical providers are compensated directly from the proceeds of the case before the injured party receives any remaining compensation. This is important for those who may not have health insurance or sufficient funds to cover immediate medical expenses arising from the injury.
Obtaining a Letter of Protection requires careful negotiation and coordination between your attorney, the medical providers, and possibly the insurance company. Here is how an experienced attorney can assist you in securing treatment with a LOP:
