Often during personal injury claims different entities will assert liens and claims on the potential monies an individual will receive from their claim. A lien is the assertion of a right to be reimbursed for amounts expended by that party, and as such, are seeking reimbursement for these amounts. In the context of the personal injury realm this often occurs with medical providers and health insurance carriers.
Medical liens are generally asserted in order to be reimbursed for the medical care that was provider associated with the personal injury claim. On the other hand, insurers will assert liens if they pay for benefits that are caused by other party. The right of insurance carriers to seek reimbursement can be complex because it depends on whether the policy is under the category of state or federal law. For this reason, it is important to discuss these matters with an experienced personal injury attorney.
