Mass Tort Lien Resolution

Planning for a mass tort settlement requires early attention to and a solid strategy for addressing potential healthcare liens to ensure timely and accurate reimbursements to insurers. Taking into account the specific nuances of each litigation, LitPRO consults with mass tort attorneys to evaluate potential liens, educate claimants, and develop strategies to address lienholder obligations, whether via global programs or traditional lien resolution methods.

An attorney-led team frequently called to audit other court-appointed lien resolution administrators (LRAs) and their programs, LitPRO sets the standard for efficient and compliant mass tort lien resolution processes. Our team has worked extensively as an LRA in complex litigation matters, ranging in size from 50 to over 100,000 claimants, including medical device litigations, sexual abuse and trafficking litigations, environmental litigations, and product liability cases.

Tailored, litigation-specific strategies.

Processes built on LitPRO’s experience, lienholder relationships, and dedicated resources to manage settlements of any scale and scope.

LitPRO has vast experience negotiating and administering mass tort lien resolution programs (LRPs) with Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and private insurance plans. Additionally, the LitPRO team is staffed and prepared to step in at a moment’s notice to resolve large numbers of mass tort liens via traditional methods, freeing up our clients’ in-house resources and resulting in lower cost to the claimants they represent.

LitPRO is actively consulting on or resolving liens for the mass tort litigations listed below. We encourage attorneys involved in these litigations or future Multidistrict Litigations (MDLs) to contact us for more information about our mass tort services.
