A Sacramento CA injury attorney might be able to help you get medical treatment if you have no health insurance coverage.

If you have been in an accident and you are experiencing pain, discomfort, dizziness, disorientation, numbness, tingling, or any other symptoms you need to seek medical treatment right away. This includes going to the hospital emergency room and undergoing a medical evaluation by a doctor. Your health depends on it.

Once you have received emergency medical treatment in an emergency department, you may find that you need to follow up on treatment.

If you have an auto insurance policy and you are in an automobile accident, you may have what is called medical payments coverage. Medical payments coverage is a type of coverage that is a part of your auto insurance policy coverage. You need to call your insurance company and specifically ask if you have medical payments coverage and what are the limits of the coverage. You can get more information about a Sacramento car accident attorney here.

If you have medical payments coverage, your auto insurance company will pay your medical bills up to the limits of coverage. This will depend on how much you purchase at the time that you purchased your insurance policy.

In California, the general medical payments policy provides for any one of the following amounts, $1000, $2000, $5000, $10,000, or $25,0000.

Your medical payments coverage can be exhausted in a rather short period of time, depending on the severity of your medical injuries.

If you are not at fault for the collision, the other driver’s insurance company will also be responsible for paying for the same medical bills for which your own insurance company has already paid. Consequently, you may be entitled to collect from the at-fault driver for the same set of medical expenses for which your insurance company has already paid. An experienced Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve if you’ve been a victim of an accident.

But what are your options if you do not have health insurance or medical payments coverage? How can you get the medical treatment you need if you do not have the money to pay for the medical treatment being recommend?

Many primary care doctors in the Sacramento and Greater Sacramento region will perform medical services on a lien basis. A lien is a signed agreement between the injured party and the medical provider to pay for any services they provide to you once the case is settled.

Many medical providers will agree to set up medical liens so that you can get the treatment you need. Some of the typical medical providers who will treat on a lien include:

  • Primary care physician evaluations and follow up appointments
  • Physical therapists
  • Medications
  • Chiropractic treatment
  • Massage therapy
  • Orthopedic evaluations
  • Therapeutic and diagnostic Injections
  • Imaging, including X-ray, MRI’s, CT scans
  • Surgeries, including neck and back surgeries, fusions, disc replacement, etc.
  • Psychological Counseling

You can get just about any type of medical treatment on a lien. So if you need medical treatment but are not able to get it because you have no health insurance, contact one of our Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyers now. We will be able to assist you with securing medical treatment you may not otherwise be able to afford.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

Herb T. Testimonial

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
