Someone Has to Pay: MAIPF Held Liable for Directly Paying PIP Benefits Where a Servicing Insurer Has Not Been Assigned

Motor Vehicle Litigation / January 10, 2020

In denying Plaintiffs’ motion for leave to amend, the trial court abused its discretion in its denial of leave on the sole basis of delay, as such a conclusion was unsupported by the record where counsel had provided a reasonable explanation for the delay.
