How do medical expense liens impact my personal injury settlement?

A lien on a personal injury claim is a legal right that somebody has to the proceeds from any judgment or settlement. When your doctor, hospital or other medical care provider gives you medical care but hasn’t been paid by you or your insurance company, they can have a medical expense lien on your personal injury case so that they get paid when you collect on your case. Therefore, addressing your medical liens is one of the most important services a personal injury attorney can do for you when negotiating settlement.

Medical providers are in the business of providing health services and are generally reluctant to reduce liens or bills for the services provided. In certain situations, your personal injury attorney can negotiate these medical liens and reduce the amount that you have to pay back for your medical bills. The attorneys at Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid consistently negotiate with our clients’ medical care providers and health insurance companies to fairly reduce the medical liens owed which increases the amount of money our clients receive in their settlements.

For instance, if you were in a car crash and incurred $9,000 at an emergency room visit, that healthcare provider or your insurance company could have a lien against any judgment or settlement for the full $9,000. However, depending on the settlement value of you case, we may be able to negotiate your liens can reduce those costs up to 33% saving you $3,000. Please feel free to contact our attorneys if you have any questions relating to your personal injury claim or how we can help get your medical liens reduced before you agree to any settlement.

The attorneys at Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid are committed to representing people who have been seriously injured and incur significant medical expenses as a result of those injuries.
