Choose A Law Firm That Does Not Run Up Discretionary Costs

Law firms charge fees to recover your medical PIP benefits under your automobile insurance policy. This must be done on a quantum meruit basis, hence on an hourly rate. Some law firms will charge a PIP processing fee of $800 on a car accident with medical bills totaling $2,500! What this essentially means is the client ends up having a portion of their medical bills unpaid, or $800 is deducted from their settlement to pay for the PIP charge. At , we use quantum meruit as a guide, but also look at the amount of total medical bills and how much their case settled for. If a quantum meruit PIP fee would ultimately be too excessive, then we lower the fee to a fair amount by looking at all the criteria of the settlement. This makes for a happy client.
