You should hire a lawyer who can file a lawsuit. The lawsuit a public record and anyone can see it. As long as everything you are alleging is the truth you shouldn't be concerned. But make sure you get the advice from an attorney that you talk to when going over all the facts.

You probably should consult a criminal defense attorney who might be able to see what is going on. If they haven't charged you yet with anything they still could be investigating, etc.. If you haven't already you should also tell your insurance company right away.

It is very hard if not impossible to answer your question with the limited amount of information. If you have an attorney - what are they telling you? Medical liens are a very complicated area of law with many variables including how obtained and what type of medical insurance you had.
