Notice of Doctor's Lien

PATIENT : _______________________________

DATE OF ACCIDENT : _______________________________

I do hereby authorize ________________________________ to furnish you, my attorney, with a full report of his/her examination, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, etc. of myself in regard to the accident in which I was recently involved.

I hereby authorize and direct you, my attorney, to pay directly to said doctor such sums as may be due and owing said doctor for medical service rendered to me both by reason of this accident and by reason of any other bills that are due the doctor’s office and to withhold such sums from any settlement, judgment, or verdict as may be necessary to adequately protect and fully compensate said doctor. And, I hereby further give a lien on my case to said doctor against any and all proceeds of my settlement, judgment, or verdict which may be paid to you, my attorney, or myself, as a result of the injuries for which I have been treated or injuries in connection therewith.

I fully understand that I am directly and fully responsible to said doctor for all medical bills submitted by said doctor for service rendered me and that this agreement is made solely for said doctor’s additional protection and in consideration of the doctor awaiting payment. And I further understand that such payment is not contingent on any settlement, judgment or verdict by which I may eventually recover said fee.

I agree to promptly notify said doctor of any change or addition of attorney(s) used by me in connection with this accident, and I instruct my attorney to do the same and to promptly deliver a copy of this lien to any such substituted or added attorney(s).

Please acknowledge this letter by signing below and returning to the doctor’s office. I have been advised that if my attorney does not wish to cooperate in protecting the doctor’s interest, the doctor will not await payment but may declare the entire balance due and payable.
