  • Attorney fees before medical lien?

    In Florida does the attorney fees come before the medical cost lien on the lawsuit? Seems like his assets will not even fully pay my medical cost. My attorney thought there were more assets then he actual has.

    Jason’s Answer

    Your attorney may be able to get a reduction of the medical bills. Also, if there is no insurance company involved, the individual may be able to avoid paying you through bankruptcy.

    Jason’s Answer

    You should not talk about the facts of the case on a public forum. Based on what little info you gave, the best anyone could do is speculate about the reason for the meeting with PTR and your bondsman. Contact a local criminal defense attorney.

    Jason’s Answer

    Unfortunately, it is not economically viable for an attorney to handle property damage claims. I do not know of an attorney that handles this type of claim. If you are receiving a subpoena from the state attorney stating you are a victim, you may be able to get restitution, which is a reimbursement for either you or your insurance company's losses, when the case resolves.

    Jason’s Answer

    There have been medical malpractice cases involving a failure to diagnose cancer. That being said, every case is different and you need an attorney to review the records. The statute of limitations is 2 years, so time is of the essence. Good luck.

    Jason’s Answer

    Contact a local defense attorney. If you cannot afford full representation, some attorneys will file a limited notice of appearance for representation on just the bond issue. However, some judges do not allow such representation, a local defense attorney will likely know whether that is possible.
