WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE? I'm on Medicaid/Medicare
Personal injury lawyers in Baltimore are very well familiar with Medicaid/Medicare's "right to reimbursement". Reduced to its most basic form, this statutory reimbursement methodology requires personal injury attorneys to insure the federal government is paid back for medical expenses covered by Medicaid/Medicare –from the proceeds of a case [e.g. a Baltimore car accident]. Seasoned Personal injury lawyers in Baltimore have been successful, in appropriate circumstances, in convincing Medicaid/Medicare to reduce or change the amount they've claimed. A vital role for any personal injury lawyers handling a Baltimore car accident case with a Medicaid/Medicare recipient is to examine the lien for accuracy, and get it reduced as appropriate.
