Healthcare Insurance Trap

Walk into a hospital emergency room and you will likely be given a pile of documents which you will only have a brief time (if any time) to review and then sign. The problem is that by signing these documents you may subject yourself to a financial commitment to pay out of pocket for your care even if you carry insurance. This is because physicians may treat you even though they don't accept your insurance. The end result could be a huge bill.

Your health is most important, but you should not have to worry about issues of finances during a time when your health is in jeopardy, and in a time of an emergency you should of course get treatment. Nevertheless, if you are able to do so, it is important to ask that only those providers which carry your insurance treat you. If after your hospital visit you receive a bill from a physician or other health care provider that you understood to accept your insurance then give us a call, because we might be able to help you.

How Our Medical Expertise Helps You

Any lawyer can win damages in egregious cases such as operating on the wrong body part. Many firms have the resources to hire experts. But few lawyers truly understand the medical science of medical malpractice litigation. As a result they may fail to recognize a viable case, unwisely pursue a weak case, or stumble in cross-examination of those medical experts.
