In order to prove these past and future medical expenses, attorneys are increasingly in need of very specific medical specialists from OBGYNs to podiatrists to hand surgeons to vascular surgery.
Tustin, CA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
Doctors on Liens, Inc. continued its support of the premier personal injury attorneys in Orange County. The Orange County Trial Lawyers Association (OCTLA) held their monthly seminar on May 22nd, this time covering the topic of “Proving and Recovering Past and Future Medical Expenses” for personal injury victims. Doctors on Liens™ was on hand, not only as a sponsor, but to connect attorneys with the right doctors to evaluate and treat their clients’ medical conditions.
The well attended event covered a range of updates to the personal injury landscape including implications for:
- The Affordable Care Act
- Howell vs. Hamilton Meats and Provisions, Inc.
- Corenbaum v. Lampkin
- ERISA, MediCare, Medi-Cal and Private Insurance
While the changing landscape of the personal injury world can make an attorney’s job of proving past and future medical expenses more challenging, the expansion of the Doctors on Liens™ network is making at least one facet easier. With the recent addition of new surgery centers and multispecialty groups in Orange County, attorneys can now find just about any specialist including orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, pain management physicians, and more.
Said, Doctors on Liens, Inc. Vice President, Geri Ditto, “In order to prove these past and future medical expenses, attorneys are increasingly in need of very specific medical specialists from OBGYNs to podiatrists to hand surgeons to vascular surgery.
Ditto also explained how by using Doctors on Liens™, attorneys can prove they weren’t referring their clients to a specific doctor to improve their case. “Attorneys are loving the idea that they can simply give their clients our website or have them download our mobile app. The client simply types in their zip code and the specialist they need, and there you go. Attorneys have the confidence their client will receive the proper care from a Doctors on Liens™ approved doctor without having to directly refer them to anyone.”
