Are insurance companies that pay medical bills after a Florida bicycle accident owed reimbursement if I get money in a lawsuit?

In the state of Florida as well as throughout the United States, insurance companies have what's called a right of reimbursement for any payments that they've made on behalf of someone, in which that person recovers money as a result of that same claim. In other words, if an accident happens and the insurance company pays for medical treatment, surgeries or anything related to the injuries from that accident, the lien that the health insurance company has has not occurred yet. The minute that person recovers one dollar from a case related to those injuries, all of a sudden at that point, the lien will take effect and then at that point the person will owe the money back to the insurance company based on how much they paid.

With that understanding, typically those health insurance liens can be reduced and it's something that an experienced personal injury attorney can handle on behalf of a client.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.

I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
