"Hold Tight on Lien Negotiations"
Over the last few days, I have had many, many phone calls from numerous doctors nationwide regarding lien settlements.In every case, with one exception, the doctor has held to the formula in Consultation #94 and has gotten paid every penny requested. The only time the doctor didn't get paid was when he did not have proof that the lawyer received the lien. In that case, the lawyer didn't have a legal responsibility to pay the lien and the fault was the doctor's own. Again, follow the procedure within Consultation #94 to the letter.
Lawyers are trained negotiators by trade. Therefore, do not get into any discussion beyond the formula outlined. Remember, they cannot disperse funds until your valid lien is satisfied. You are in full control regardless of the rhetoric they give you. Follow the formula...Do not negotiate against yourself and GET PAID!!!!
