What is a medical lien?

The repayment of debt is an important consideration after being compensated for your injuries and losses in an accident, and a “medical lien” allows a medical care provider the right to be compensated if you, as a patient, are awarded damages in a settlement.

As it applies to personal injury cases, a medical lien ensures that hospitals and physicians receive a percentage of your compensation to cover prior medical services related to your injuries in the accident. Medical liens depend on a plaintiff winning the case or a settlement-agreement and typically apply to accident-victims who required immediate medical treatment and/or could not afford their necessary treatment.

If your medical bills have not been paid since being injured in the accident, or the costs of your treatment exceeded your insurance coverage, your medical care provider will have a right to a medical lien for the outstanding balance. Fortunately, these providers are generally flexible in terms of negotiating medical liens, as being paid can take years and they are not fully guaranteed to be paid in the first place. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will work with the insurance companies and health care providers to arrange for timelier payments, reduce your financial burdens, and maximize your compensation for your injuries and losses.
