How do you help your client get more money by reducing medical bills?
Any time I have a personal injury case, we have to deal with the medical bills. I’m on the phone a lot during the day trying to get medical providers to reduce bills so the client can walk away knowing that they’ve been made whole. That’s how a successful resolution occurs on any personal injury case, is having zero balances, getting a good money settlement that’s similar to the amount that you can get if you walked out of a courthouse. Clients need to be made whole. That’s what the job of a personal injury lawyer is.
On every injury case, what I want to do as an effective personal injury lawyer is to make sure all the bills have been paid. You can’t be made whole as an injured person if you’re owing money to your providers. So that’s why it’s very critical that each provider has a zero balance at the end of the case.
