  1. As an FYI, I would refile this question with a different heading (ie. Medical Claims and Statute of Limitations) as this question appears for DUI attorneys. Hopefully the new heading will get you to a lawyer who specifically works in this field (as opposed to us DUI attorneys)
    Good luck.

  2. Understand that the insurance carrier is your adversary; they have placed you in a defense posture. Seek legal counsel - Avvo, local bar association, someone you trust and respect - Jeff Adams


  3. Definitely refile this question under a heading involving insurance claims as opposed to personal injury. Best of luck.


  4. To receive proper responses, I would definitely repost this question under a different heading, such as subrogation or medical liens. State statutes usually address the various types of liens and the proper enforcement mechanisms, including the applicable statute of limitations. These are unique to your specific state.
