About Fee Recovery and Settlement Law
Recovering medical liens after claims are settled
Timely payment of medical liens and emergent care claims has become an industry-wide problem; too many providers are not being compensated for their work in a fair and timely fashion, personal injury attorneys can themselves be roadblocks to equitable settlements, and practices can easily become overwhelmed by non-medical work that interferes with efficient office management and cash flow.
A new field of legal practice can help you overcome this problem by directly addressing the inequities and abuses rampant in PI medical lien situations and emergent out-of-network fee recovery.
If you are a medical practice that carries out Emergency Services, but you are struggling to collect your reasonable billed charges from the Out-Of-Network Medical Insurers you are billing, Nesbit Law Group can help.
- Many medical providers are not compensated in a fair and timely fashion
Nesbit Law Group can negotiate far better results than individual doctors
- Your practice no longer wastes time and resources to recover fair settlements.
- You concentrate on what you do best—providing excellent medical care to your patients
Personal Injury Lien Recovery Lawsuits: a growing problem
For too long, unethical personal injury attorneys have been taking advantage of medical practitioners by forcing them to accept lowball payments for their services, failing to disclose the results of patient case settlements, and often simply refusing to take funds from their clients’ settlements to pay for the provided services at all.
Many of these attorneys bully providers simply because they are in a position to withhold payments for these medical liens. This unfair treatment can be remedied with a relatively new form of legal assistance; the services of a fee recovery and settlement law firm such as Nesbit Law Group.

Case Study: Dr. Ryan S., md
“We felt like we were banging our heads against a brick wall until Alan presented the options to us in a concise and easy to understand manner. He quickly obtained some money for us and then was able to negotiate an excellent settlement after filing suit. At all times I felt fully informed and confident that we would come out with a great result and be properly compensated for the difficult and lengthy surgery that I needed to perform to save the patient’s life. The amount I received exceeded my current fee structure for the same procedures which was a fantastic result.”
Failure to pay any of the six-figure fees to out-of-network Plastic Surgeon for lengthy emergency surgery.
Our client, a plastic surgeon, was on call to an HMO Hospital ER department. He performed life-saving surgery on a patient and billed the HMO $285,000, but the HMO offered him $0 due to “billing discrepancies.” The doctor’s billing company made significant attempts to resolve the dispute to no avail, and finally the surgeon engaged Nesbit Law Group to assist. After only a single correspondence, the HMO sent us a check for over $50,000.
While encouraging, this was simply not sufficient, so we filed suit on the doctor’s behalf. A further $125,000 was negotiated before we even completed discovery. The issue was complicated because the surgeon had, subsequent to the billing in this case, dropped his entire fee structure by 50%, and there were also potential statute of limitation problems that were expertly set aside. The client was extremely pleased at the result of our interventions.

If you have fallen while walking along your local street or sidewalk and suffered an injury, your time is probably now spent having to go to hospital or doctors, which should be your first priority. If you then consider filing a claim against the city, what will you need?
It is a common mistake of practices to move their best fee-earners into managerial positions and, in the process, lose their best fee-earners to the rigors and time constraints of managing.
Niche legal firms will have lower overhead, be able to provide a more tailored and potentially dedicated individual service to their clients, and will be easier to manage on both a supervisory and regulatory level, due to a smaller number of staff involved.
