Health Insurance Liens In Personal Injury Cases

U. S. Airways,  Inc. v. McCutchen Decision Impacts Personal Injury Cases

It appears health insurance companies are going to become increasingly difficult to deal with in personal injury cases caused by negligent  actions where they have the right to a lien. The Supreme Court of the United  States handed down a very unfavorable opinion for plaintiff’s personal injury attorneys in the Case of U.S. Airways, Inc. v. McCutchen. Depending on the type of healthcare plan an individual has with their employer all medical bills that are the result of injuries caused by the negligence of another may now have  to be repaid. This decision will certainly make dealing with healthcare lienholders more complex and presents many obstacles for those who are injured as the result of another’s carelessness and are pursuing a claim against the person that injured them.

I would just like to “Thank You” for the help and services you provided to me during my difficult time following my motorcycle accident. Thanks to Mr. Freeburn and his fellow associates I was able to get back on my feet (financially) in a relatively short time. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in need of assistance following an accident like mine. Thank you again.
