Many of our client’s receive notice of a Georgia Medical Lien soon after they are discharged from the emergency room and in previous articles, we have documented what your rights are. Some clients move or keep less than perfect paper records and as they near settlement of their claim through their lawyer, they worry that after settlement, they will be sued by a hospital or a doctor for an unpaid bill. Thankfully, there is a free public database to search for medical liens. You should know that experience has proven this database is not perfect and you should still physically go to the Superior Court Clerk’s Office where you live to be 100% sure. Nonetheless, this resource is a great place to start. Here is the link to the free Georgia Medical Lien database.
