The case settled but the hospital does not want to accept the reduction. What is needed for an equitable distribution hearing?
it certainly sounds like the motion for equitable distribution of settlement proceeds is premature. Is it possible that there is enough of the settlement agreement for distribution, while the amount of the hospital lien can be held in escrow? You will need to speak with your attorney for the specifics.
Assuming that it is a public hospital, they won't have to deal with you. They are entitled to a lien by law that is even superior to your attorneys' fees. Hospitals in South Florida are tough to deal with. I only know of one or two attorneys that successfully take them on.
