Written by a leading expert in this area, Negotiating and Settling Tort Cases: Handling Healthcare LIens provides attorneys with the information they need to maximize recoveries and meet their legal obligations.

In personal injury cases, attorneys must often deal with issues that can impact the ultimate recovery, including:

  • Addressing taxation issues
  • Addressing probate issues
  • Structuring recoveries in such a way to maintain eligibility for benefits

Features

  • Guidance on other recovery-related issues, including ethical issues, eligibility for government benefits, special needs trusts and other third party fiduciary applications, qualified settlement funds, taxation of personal injury recoveries, settlement-related probate issues, mass tort settlements, and attorney fees and case expenses
  • Guidance on whether a Medicare set-aside to address future medical expenses is appropriate when resolving a workers' compensation or liability claim
  • Guidance on negotiating and resolving healthcare liens, including Medicare liens, Medicaid liens, and other healthcare liens
