  • My settlement for my daughters death is $60000. The lawyer gets $26850. I get $14345. And the rest in lien (kaiser) $18500.

    Everyone is getting more than me and it's me who lost my child. My lawyer never advice me about any lien before the settlement. Am really mad. My lawyer charged 33.33% of gross settlement. How much should the lien amount be negotiated to or drop?

    Vance’s Answer

    Usually the medical liens can be reduced. However, may times it depends on whether the health plan is a self-funded ERISA plan. The other issue is to make sure that there is no other coverage possible on this claim.
