A: A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. Ordinarily, AOB forms are used to enable medical providers to get paid directly from your insurance carrier. Here, it's difficult to say exactly what it means without seeing the form you describe. But one possibility is that there are liens for medical services asserted by the doctors or other medical providers who treated you. They want their money back. So they might be claiming their right to funds off the top of your case before anything goes to pay your award. But that's only general speculation - it would be best to review the form with a Virginia attorney to determine exactly what its effect is before you sign anything. Good luck
