Are My Medical Bills Paid Out Of My Personal Injury Award?

As discussed elsewhere, insurance carriers that have paid medical bills related to a car accident, or the providers themselves, will assert a claim, or a "lien" on any amount you are awarded.

One of the most important roles a Baltimore personal injury attorney should fill is as a negotiator of these liens.

An effective attorney often will be successful in getting the amounts claimed by medical providers, and in some instances, insurers who have paid medical bills, reduced- meaning more money in your pocket. For example, Section 11-112 of the Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article provides that a health insurer with a certificate of authority in Maryland must reduce their lien proportionally to the attorney's fees, to a maximum of 33%.
