Lien on settlement
#1
I settled my workcomp case but.......I have a medical malpractice against one of the doctors that work comp sent me to. How can my (ex)employers wc company have a lien on that, when they sent me there??????
I have had capsulodesis scaphoid, capsulodesis lunotriquetral joint wrist, debridement of triangular fibrocartilage all in my right wrist and a tendon sheath release(that was just one surgery) & a lunotriquetral fusion Plus now a wrist fusion

Because they paid the bill, it was their doctor.

Any suits within a comp system have Liens to recover money spent by the IC.

How much money is the Lien for?

choosing a doctor doesn't erase your right to be treated correctly or sue for a recovery when you aren't.
that applies to both you and the employer.

They didn't give an amount but when I ask attorney he said everything after that doctor medical bills prescriptions physical therapy pain management everything. The letter I got just says that even though I settled my case it is still opened. They left it open due to the lien.
