A LETTER OF PROTECTION CAN MAKE OR BREAK SOME CASES
A Letter of Protection is a tool that can allow help you, as a personal injury victim, to receive the medical treatment you need to start making a recovery as well as help you build a winning case.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO RECEIVE MEDICAL TREATMENT ASAP
Car accident victims need to receive medical treatment as soon as possible, and a Letter of Protection can be one of the best ways to help you get the treatment soon. First of all, it’s important for you to start having relief from your car accident injuries. Second, medical treatment is a key factor in building a personal injury case that will provide you the compensation you deserve.
GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS… MOSTLY GOOD NEWS
Car insurance companies expect you to obtain your own medical treatment after a car accident or other personal injury incident. The problem only grows when injured people realize that many doctors won’t provide medical treatment to car accident victims because the doctors aren’t sure if they’ll get paid for their services.
We are aware of many medical providers who will treat car accident victims in Arlington, Fort Worth, Dallas, and the remainder of the DFW Metroplex. Not only are they willing to provide medical treatment, but they are also willing to delay payments until the case is resolved if they receive a Letter of Protection.
HOW DOES A LETTER OF PROTECTION WORK?
A Letter of protection is a document that is sent from our law firm to your medical provider. The document “protects” that your medical providers are owed for your treatment. A Letter of Protection can be summed up as a contract wherein we ask the medical provider to treat you for your injuries and not require you to make any installment payments or copayments. In exchange, we promise the medical provider that we will pay your bill for medical treatment from the proceeds of your settlement.
A Letter of Protection can make it possible for almost every car accident victim to receive medical treatment for their injuries, regardless of their ability to pay the doctors directly. Receiving a Letter of Protection can also help you avoid adding financial stress after a car accident.
HOW DO I GET A LETTER OF PROTECTION?
Like I said before, a Letter of Protection is a type of contract. In order to enter into this agreement on your behalf, you must retain Allbee Law Firm.
Prior to retaining Allbee Law Firm, we will provide a free consultation. We want to understand your case and what makes it unique. We also want to make sure that we’re not setting you up for disappointment. We will discuss all factors of your case to determine if we can help you build a winning case.
Once we agree to accept your case, we will make arrangements to sign a contract. The contact provides clarity for you and for us. It specifies that we’re representing you for a car accident and not a traffic ticket, divorce, or another type of legal proceeding. It also provides an explanation of all payment arrangements.
GO SEE THE DOCTOR
Once the paperwork is signed, we can send a Letter of Protection to your doctor. If your doctor does not accept a Letter of Protection, we can help you find a doctor who accepts a letter of protection close to your home or work.
FOCUS ON GETTING HEALTHY
At this point, your job is to follow the doctor’s orders and focus on getting better. The doctors will keep detailed records of the starting point of your injuries, your progress, and whether you make a full recovery. We will use your medical records in court or when negotiating with insurance adjusters.

Every case is unique, and there are many details with this process. We’re available 24/7, call (817) 244-6453 if you need an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner.

It’s important to keep in mind that some injuries might require medical treatment from specialists who do not accept a Letter of Protection. It’s also important to realize that medical treatment under a Letter of Protection won’t require payment from personal injury victims when a settlement or favorable jury verdict is obtained. In other words, it’s important to make sure that you have a case that we are likely to win before you incur medical treatment. In the event that your case doesn’t pan out, it’s possible that medical providers will want you to make payments for the treatment you received.
