Motor Vehicle Litigation / November 21, 2019
Court/Case No: 19th District Court/19-32575-GC
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Verdict: $0 – Motion for Summary Disposition granted
Name of Judge(s): Honorable Mark Somers
Keys to the Case:
Plaintiff claimed bills resulting from toxicology testing occurring on multiple days of service. During discovery in the underlying PIP case, it was discovered that the patient had coordinated policy and health insurance. In response to Defendant’s Motion for Summary Disposition, Plaintiff pointed out its bills were submitted to the health insurance company, but were denied. In turn, Defendant argued the denial was a result of Plaintiff’s failure to timely submit the bills and therefore Defendant owed nothing. The Court agreed, citing Plaintiff’s responsibility to timely submit bills when a patient has a coordinated policy and health insurance. Plaintiff’s failure to do so proved to be fatal.
