What are Letters of Protection?

“Letters of Protection” are very often a necessary part of your claim, which again may decrease your net recovery. Very often your medical bills will exceed available insurance coverage. The only way that doctors will continue to treat you is for your lawyer to provide to your doctor a “letter of protection”, which insures that your doctor will be paid for his medical services out of the client’s portion of any award. In this sense, letters of protection and liens are very similar. Both repay others out of your award for either insurance benefits or medical services that were provided to you in your case. As you can easily see, set-offs, collateral sources, liens and letters of protection can drastically reduce your net recovery, and they must be understood within the context of your specific case. You simply must fully discuss these concepts with your attorney, and understand them regarding the way that they may affect your recovery.
