Trial Victory for Schefman for Neurosurgeon & MRI facility

The jury returned its verdict in favor of Schefman’s clients, a neurosurgeon and MRI facility, seeking reimbursement for medical care rendered to the PIP-insured. The total award, which included statutory no-fault interest for over-due payments, totaled $186,000. Additional sums are due for attorney fees and recovery of double damages under the Medicare Secondary Payor act, 42 USC 1395y. “We are gratified that the jury rejected the PIP carrier’s theories, and awarded every cent of the payments we had asked for; our clients were thrilled” Schefman said. “The recovery under the Medicare Secondary Payor act had a substantial impact on the jury”. Total judgment may exceed $265,000.
