Over the past 20 years the litigation over medical treatment and medical legal liens has substantially increased the cost of every workers' compensation claim. At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, we maintain a lien unit consisting of a Lien Unit Manager, lien negotiators and lien hearing representatives. Each member of the lien unit has been trained in all phases of the official medical fee schedule, the Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule and the Medicare Fee Schedule. The Lien Unit is adept at reviewing medical bills and determining the reasonable cost of services. They are capable of identifying and litigating all legal issues affecting the lien claimants claim for reimbursement. Through the use of our Lien Unit we are able to effectively reduce your liability for lien claims and expedite the closure of the file.
