Who Treats Personal Injury Cases?
We see many patients who have had trouble finding a physician to see them after an accident. Patients often come into our clinic ecstatic that they have found a doctor who will treat their injuries. Although Personal Injury treatment is offered by many medical doctors and chiropractors, many physicians do not treat personal injury cases because they do not want to deal with third party insurance companies or letters of protections (LOP) from attorneys.
Third Party Insurance Explained
Third party insurance is insurance purchased for protection against claims from another party. For example, if you get hit by another driver and they are at fault, you will want his insurance to pay for your damages or injuries. Filing against his insurance is considered a third-party claim.
Letters of Protections Explained
LOPs are promises from lawyers to medical providers that incurred medical expenses will be paid if their clients can secure compensation for their accidents. As you can imagine this can be a risky scenario for doctors, so many doctors choose to avoid this situation. Additionally, payments for these expenses usually don’t occur until after the injured person’s case settles, which can take months to years.

At San Antonio Pain and Injury Doctors we believe all patients should receive the care they deserve so we are willing to handle the additional work of handling third party insurances and accept the risks associate with LOPs. We know how to treat an injured patient and prepare the proper documentation for insurance companies and attorneys. When choosing the correct doctor for your care it is important to find a physician with experience and a referral network in place. We have strong roots in San Antonio, and have an extensive referral network in place to get our patients the proper care they need when they need it.
What is the cost of treatment?
Your initial consultation is always free and in most situations if the other person is at fault your treatment will be covered by third party insurance. Even if you are at fault, very often your own auto insurance will include coverage for treatment of your injuries. If third party insurance is not available, and you don’t have auto insurance, you can use your own health insurance. Lastly, if there aren’t any insurance options, you could do it the old-fashioned way and pay cash. Our rates are very reasonable and we have had several clients choose to pay with cash rather than dealing with insurance. Should you decide to choose us to be your treating clinic, we will ensure that you receive the treatment you need as soon as possible. We work with all attorneys and third party insurance companies.
Do I need an attorney?
Not every injured patient needs an attorney. We can give you the information you need to help you in your decision. Personal Injury attorneys can be very beneficial to anyone injured as the result of a motor vehicle accident. Insurance companies can be difficult for most injured individuals to deal with after an accident. A majority of people are in pain, missing work or without a vehicle after a motor vehicle accident has occurred. When faced with physical pain and stress, it may be too much to deal with an insurance company adjustor or representative. Insurance representatives can sometimes call an injured individual requesting updates at home or even at work. With an attorney representing you, insurance representatives can no longer contact you, but instead they are required to contact your attorney for all records or updates. San Antonio Attorneys can assist you with the process and ensure that you get the help you need, when you need it. However, not all attorneys specialize or practice in the personal injury field. We know several great attorneys in San Antonio who are experts in this field and we can provide you with a list of extremely personable attorneys to choose from for care.
