What if I’m Injured and don’t have health insurance?
Are you out of luck?
The answer is NO.
Sometimes the injured hesitate going to ER due to lack of health insurance. There are a lot of health providers in Georgia that will treat the patient of a personal injury case on a medical lien, knowing they will get paid out of the recovery. Typically, the medical provider will not do this without an experienced law firm representing the patient. The lawyer will sign the lien, via a letter of protection. A medical lien is not an attachment to property, like the contractor’s lien (i.e. mechanics lien). It’s attached to the proceeds of the case.
