Oftentimes settlements or trials take place long after medical treatment has been administered to the injured parties. When this happens, a medical provider is entitled to a lien on the unpaid medical bills against the injured parties’ settlement or damage award. Illinois permits liens asserted by healthcare providers including: hospitals, doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors.

Under the Healthcare Services Lien Act, the combined liens from healthcare professionals (doctors and dentists, for example) and healthcare providers (hospitals, for example) cannot exceed 40% of the injured party’s recovery of damages. If the lien amount is greater than 40% of the total recovery, each category (healthcare provider and professional) is capped at 20% of the recovery. Additionally, neither healthcare providers nor professionals individually may have a lien amounting to greater than 33% of the injured party’s recovery. If you have questions about your medical car lien, call Attorney Dan Newlin now for a free consultation.

A lien is considered to be a legal interest in a particular cause of action so the liens will need to be addressed before the settlement proceeds can be distributed.
