Injury Case Bill Collectors
In this video, Attorney Tyson Mutrux explains what to do when bill collectors are contacting you regarding your injury case.
If you have received letters from bill collectors demanding payment for your medical bills following an auto accident or injury case, the best course of action is to send a Letter of Protection. This letter does require you to pay the provider back, but there may be instances where you don’t have to. If they have placed a lien on your case, sending a Letter of Protection stating that payment will be made out of the settlement when the case is resolved can usually stop the harassing letters and calls.
However, this may not always be the case. The bill collectors may continue sending reminders to you. If you don’t have an attorney representing you, it’s likely they have already sent a lien to the insurance company. If you do have an attorney, they likely already have the lien and will deal with it at the end of the case.
Sending a Letter of Protection is the simplest way to stop the harassment from bill collectors. If they continue to harass you, it’s important to involve an attorney who can help hold them at bay and prevent them from continuing to harass you.
