Lawsuit For Medical Bills?
New York Lawsuit Defense Attorneys
When faced with a lawsuit for medical debts, the claim may includes causes
of action for Breach of Contract, Accounts Stated, and Unjust Enrichment.
Even in situations where a contract doesn't exist, medical debts may
still be collected by doctors and other services providers through the
doctrine of Quantum Meruit to recover the fair value of the services rendered.
Fighting Lawsuits For Hospital Debts
Our office was retained to defend a client from a lawsuit for medical bills from
Nortshore University Hospital. The attorney representing the hospital in this collection action was
Mullooly Jeffrey Rooney & Flynn llp. In the lawsuit, they were claiming that a debt of approximately
$5500 was due. We asserted a comprehensive Answer which included general denials
as well as affirmative defenses. Instead of going to trial, an arrangement
was achieved which allowed our client to
settle his obligation for
$1800. This is a savings of over $3700, and is a
reduction of over 65% off the debt amount.
How Do We Help Resolve Medical Judgments?
A client retained our law firm for assistance with a judgment for medical
North Shore University Hospital. With interest, the judgment balance was approximately
$1500. The law firm representing North Shore University Hospital was
Smith, Carroad, Levy, & Wan PC. Our negotiations involved discussing our client's hardship and the
cause of the underlying
hospital bill and subsequent default. We also submitted proof of the client's financial
inability to pay the debt back in full.
Our client ultimately settled the medical judgment for less then $50.00. This resulted in a
reduction of approximately 96.5% of the outstanding balance. Although these results are not typical, it is indicative of what could
potentially be achieved under the right set of circusmtances.
