Government Subrogation Liens & Your Personal Injury Case
By Ben Sessions on December 14th, 2022 in
Are government subrogation liens against personal injury cases able to be negotiated?
Yes, government subrogation liens against personal injury cases can typically be negotiated. In general, a lien is a legal claim or right that a creditor has against a property. In the case of a government subrogation lien, this means that the government has a legal claim against a personal injury settlement or judgment in order to recover funds that were paid out for medical expenses.
To learn more about the statute of limitations for the U.S. Government’s subrogation claims, see 28 U.S.C. § 2415.
