For example, part of it might include medical expenses that have been incurred, recovery of lost wages, recovery of property damage, or other things such as pain and suffering, disability, etc. Those are what is called general damages. When a person comes to that settlement, there are often claims against that settlement. For example, if you received medical care on a lien where a doctor treated you without getting paid, that doctor will need to be paid back. So there is a lien against your recovery. Or if your medical bills were paid by your own private insurance or by medical pay under your insurance or by some form of workers compensation insurance, each of those insurance companies will have a claim for reimbursement or what is called subrogation.
