If you believe a hospital lien has been filed against you after you were hurt in an accident, you can check for a lien on your local county clerk’s website. For example, in Tarrant County accident victims can go here to the Tarrant County website and click on ‘online searches.’ From there, you can search for your lien by your last name or hospital where treated.
If you find out you have a hospital lien against you after a car wreck, it’s a good idea to consult a personal injury attorney about your options. Hospital liens can complicate the claims process, but an attorney will protect your rights, file the necessary paperwork, and handle the proceedings with the hospital and the insurance company.
