When you receive medical treatment for injuries sustained in an accident, Medicare may cover some or all of the costs. However, if you receive a settlement for those same injuries, Medicare may have a right to be reimbursed for the amount they paid for your medical bills.

This is called a "lien" and it means that Medicare has a legal claim to a portion of your settlement to cover their expenses. The good news is that your attorney may be able to negotiate with Medicare to reduce the amount they are owed, which can help maximize the amount of money you receive from your settlement.

It's important to keep in mind that every case is different and the rules surrounding Medicare liens can be complex. That's why it's crucial to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.

In general, if you were not at fault for the accident and you make a claim for personal injury, your rates should not go up. This is because your insurance company will seek reimbursement from the at-fault driver's insurance company, rather than paying out of their own pocket.

However, if you were partially or fully at fault for the accident, making a claim could result in higher rates. This is because your insurance company will have to pay out for your damages, and they may see you as a higher-risk driver as a result.

It's important to note that every insurance policy is different, so it's always a good idea to review your policy and speak with your insurance agent to understand how making a claim could impact your rates. Additionally, if you're unsure about who was at fault for the accident, it's best to consult with a personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and protect your rights.

YTACS is a network of young professionals working together to raise money and awareness to support the American Cancer Society's mission of saving lives and leading the fight for a world without cancer.

Young Texans Against Cancer was established in 2001. The founding members had something in common: cancer. Some had personally battled cancer while others witnessed loved ones struggling with the illness.

Inspired by their similarities and struggles, the founding members created YTAC to increase cancer awareness among their generation of young professionals and the community. YTAC has raised over $2.5 million in support of the fight against cancer.

Attorney Hughey is proud to support this foundation in their mission and fight against cancer.
