In many cases, the insurance companies nitpick the amount of doctors' bills submitted under the No-Fault law or refuse to pay them for no good reason.
Pain alone won't carry the day, either for settlement, or in court. Plants! Types of fees are hourly, a flat fee or a contingency basis. Ironically, this insurance carrier-sponsored physicals are called “Independent Medical Examinations” - they are certainly not “independent.” They all revolved around the idea that unless a suspect was informed of his or her rights, any statement made was not admissible in the trial because the suspect might not have said some things if a lawyer had been there to say “don't answer that.”
