One way to increase the amount of money recovered by an injury victim is to decrease the amounts being disbursed to others. Since all disbursements in this context come from the same pot, a decrease in one is necessarily an increase in another.
Maryland has a statute that requires some health insurers to reduce their reimbursement claims.
The diligent personal injury attorney will also review the printout of the payments, to ensure that no unrelated services are being included in the reimbursement claim. The thorough lawyer will likewise negotiate with a subrogation representative to get the best possible scenario based on the relative equities, even where there is no right to reimbursement. Knowledge of the various methods to get these bills reduced is a vital role of a personal injury attorney.
