Here’s Why You Need a Letter of Protection – Personal Injury Attorneys
Immediately after any accident, you’ll need to go to the Emergency Room in order to receive urgent medical attention. This is usually done to stabilize you so you can then get more treatment in the future, and so that your vitals are within the normal range, and there are no major issues that may lead to complications and loss of life. However, what most people don’t know is that after receiving treatment at the ER, it will be up to you to get surgery, referrals and other medical care in order to be made whole again. If you’re like most Americans, you don’t have a rainy day fund for accident injuries, whether it be a slip and fall event at a mall, a car accident that wasn’t your fault, a fire at a place of work, an industrial or construction site accident and so on. However, you don’t have to despair, as a letter of protection will save the day.

A Letter of Protection or LOP is an agreement sent by your lawyer to your hospital or medical provider which is essentially a promissory note of sorts that lets them know you will pay your bills once you receive your settlements due on account of your injuries via a personal injury claim. This letter will essentially buy you time and can help in making sure collection companies don’t come for your assets due to unpaid medical bills in the future.
Here are some instances where an LOP may be really helpful:
- You have no insurance
- Your insurance policy has high deductibles
- You don’t have money to foot the bill upfront
Letter of Protection Vs Help From the Insurance Company
Insurance companies love to talk about what they can do for you in the event of an unplanned emergency, but the reality is that they don’t usually put their mouth where their money is. They are more likely to delay your treatment by having to put every bill through numerous approvals, or they may even ask for a second medical opinion, or flat out refuse a certain medical procedure by calling it non-essential. A Letter of Protection will help you in such instances as it will help you speed through any bumps and give you access to timely medical care.
