Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Why does the at fault insurance not pay for my medical care?

In Georgia, there seems to be a misconception that the at fault insurance company must pay for medical care. Unfortunately, in Georgia the at fault insurance company will not pay for your medical care until you have completed treatment. The insurance company will settle at the end and will not pay as you go to treatment.

If you have medical payments coverage through your automobile insurance policy, group health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, you may have a source to cover your needed medical expenses. Otherwise, if you have no insurance coverage, it likely could be up to you pay your medical provider as you go. There are other options, such as the medical providers may perform their medical services on a lien basis.

A lien is an agreement to treat the patient now in return for payment once the case is either won or settled. Now a days it is getting increasingly difficult to find medical providers who will work on a lien. Most medical providers do not wish to wait for payment, or in some cases treat the patient and not get paid at all if the patient is not successful for any reason.

Recently, there are organizations which will work with doctors and attorneys in order to get clients medical treatment they need and to make sure the doctors get paid for their services.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
