Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney
In personal injury cases, the medical bills are usually negotiated by your attorney before any money is distributed to you. Often these bills are discounted for a lump sum of cash. So the scenario you describe is unusual & I would suggest discussing with your pi attorney. Hope this perspective helps!

The money is in trust because the lawyer is likely negotiating with the hospital and doctors to lower the bills. Once he or she gets those lowered you will get the remainder. Call you lawyer and ask if he/she is negotiating the bills for you.

It is always best to wait to sign the release until the lawyer has negotiated the medical bills down to 5-10 cents on the dollar.
