Are payments made by my health insurance carrier paid back out of settlement proceeds?

If any insurance company pays some of your medical or other expenses arising from your injury, the law provides “subrogation”, which means that the insurance company stands “in your shoes” and can recover from the liable party some or all of the amounts paid on your behalf. If this is the case, they usually are required to pay their proportionate share of the attorneys’ fees and costs in connection with the recovery. This is handled on a case-by-case basis.
