What Is A Letter Of Protection

Letter of Protection (LOP) from a law office is a legal document that assures medical providers that they will be paid for their services from any potential settlement or verdict in a personal injury case. It allows individuals to receive necessary medical treatment without upfront payment, with the understanding that the medical expenses will be covered once the case is resolved.

How LOP Works

A Letter of Protection (LOP) serves as a vital agreement between attorney offices and emergency rooms, facilitating access to medical care for individuals involved in personal injury cases. Here’s how it works:

This document assures the emergency room that payment for medical services will be made from any settlement or verdict obtained in the client’s personal injury case.

With the LOP in place, the emergency room can provide necessary medical treatment to the client without requiring upfront payment. This enables individuals to receive prompt care, even if they are facing financial challenges.
