Rear ended in car accident two months ago. Suffer from whiplash and lumbar pain. Hired a personal injury atty on contingency and we are placing atty liens with providers for prescriptions and treatments. Also have Medpay from auto insurance as 2nd source of payment. I have no health insurance.
The guy who crashed into us had auto insurance and his insurance coverage has accepted fault.
Slowly but surely trying different treatments such as initial hospital ER visit, xray, chiro, massage, pain mgmt, MRI, prescriptions, facet inj, epidural inj. Now I am thinking of exploring an appointment w/ an orthopedic spine specialist.
Anybody familiar with how atty liens and liability truly work? Thinking of a settlement after about 6 months, maybe give it a year of treatment efforts. My concern is that the $ liability limit will be reached before I explore all my treatment options and will be stuck with the bills and still in pain.
