If you’ve ever found yourself in a position requiring serious medical attention without insurance coverage, you know it’s not a fun place to be. During law school, my wife and I had to cash in a large portion of our retirement savings to pay for necessary medical attention that wasn’t covered by our policy. Of course, Uncle Sam wanted his piece of the pie when tax time rolled around as well. This was hard enough when we were both burning the candle at both ends while I finished school. I can’t imagine how difficult it would have been if we hadn’t been able to pay at all, but this is often the case people are faced with.
We often see clients in a similar predicament; they’ve been in an accident and need medical attention, they want to see a doctor, but they just can’t afford it. Not only does it cause further pain and delay their recovery, it can actually devalue their case. Many times, clients have lost their jobs due to injuries, further compounding the problem. Fortunately, there may be other options depending on the facts of the case. It is important to discuss what options are available with an attorney, as each case is different and there is no “one size fits all” answer.
