hospital - liens- what now

In 2004 I was in an accident. I was sent to a local hospital, they sent me to a trauma center.
I spent 10 days there. I had no insurance at the time. Before I made it home the first hospital had a lien against me. I applied for charity program at the trauma center, and the doctor I was seeing there said that I was able to work so they denied me and put a lien on me. The liens were not property liens, only if I recieve money. I suffered a broke neck in the accident. I have not been able to work, and have applied for disability.  So what can I do about the liens? If I do win my disability case, they will take all of my back time and then some. I need this. I asked my attorney if the insurance will go back to the date of the accident. He said it is up to the judge. I have thought about bankruptcy but that costs money.
What do I do?

As far as I know social sercurity disability payments can not be garnished.  Have you set up a payment plan with them.  Even $10 a month shows good faith.
