Medical Records Case Settlement

Lawyers reach settlement in medical records case

KANSAS CITY (AP) — Lawyers have asked a Jackson County judge to approve about a $400,000 settlement in a lawsuit filed after personal medical records that were put in the trash were blown across a neighborhood in May.

The settlement was between Midwest Women’s Healthcare Specialists and 1,532 of its clients, The Kansas City Star reported.

Mitchell Burgess, the attorney representing the clients, said lawyers don’t have any evidence that anyone used the information for illegal or improper purposes.

Getting access to the funds you need, when you need them most.

Pre-settlement funding is often the best option for assistance with paying bills and day-to-day living expenses for plaintiffs involved in litigation. If you are unable to work and the bills are mounting up, pre-settlement funding may be able to help.

Additional Benefits of Pre-Settlement Funding

If you need help paying your bills or your day-to-day expenses, pre-settlement funding can help you in your time of need. Mortgage payments, car payments, medical bills and utility bills are just some of the obligations that pre-settlement funding can help you take care of.

In many cases, people have to accept the first offer the defense makes because the plaintiff is in such dire financial need. Pre-settlement funding can help the plaintiff weather the storm and hold out for the result that they deserve.

Another benefit of pre-settlement funding involves the risk to the plaintiff. The source of repayment to the pre-settlement funding company is solely the case itself. If the case isn’t successful, the plaintiff is not required to pay back the funds received.

Pre-settlement funding can serve as a bridge to get you through a difficult time and allow you to receive the justice that you deserve.

Negotiating Tips for Hospital Liens

Continuing our series on how to approach liens in personal injury cases and how to negotiate the different types of lien claims that arise in personal injury cases, we now address negotiating hospital lien claims.

Hospital lien claims generally arise because your client received emergency care at a hospital following their accident, and your client did not have insurance to pay for the hospital treatment, your client’s health insurance covers part of the hospital bill but not all of it, or the hospital learns that a third party is responsible and refuses to submit the bill to your client’s insurer.
