No-Fault Civil RICO Lawyers in New York and New Jersey
Representing Defendants in Civil Court
In New York and New Jersey, automobile insurance policies provide coverage
for medical expenses arising from injuries sustained in car accidents.
The medical benefits portion of the automobile insurance policy is known
as “No-Fault” coverage, and it applies to anyone in the vehicle
regardless of who is at fault for the collision. In lieu of seeking payment
directly from the patient (the insured or other injured party), the medical
provider accepts an assignment of benefits from the patient, which then
permits the medical provider to bill the automobile insurer directly for
the patient’s medical treatment. Unfortunately, notwithstanding
black letter law that requires automobile insurers to treat medical providers
in a non-adversarial manner, most No-Fault claims are denied.
Further, the automobile insurer will sometimes file a Fraud/Civil RICO
lawsuit in yet another attempt to avoid payment of the medical provider’s
claim. In filing such a lawsuit, the automobile insurer is relying on
the medical provider lacking either the means or the fortitude to mount
a defense to the lawsuit, or the ability to wait an extended period for
payment of its claim. Unfortunately, this reliance is not misplaced, as
medical providers are too often compelled to surrender their valid No-Fault
claims without putting up a fight. It is in this arena that The Russell
Friedman Law Group, LLP has battled automobile insurers for over two decades,
championing the interests of underdog medical providers.

Damages in No-Fault Civil RICO Cases
The RICO Act has its roots in the government’s effort to interrupt
organized crime, fraudulent dealings, and money laundering. As such, RICO
laws and punishments are severe. In a No-Fault civil RICO suit, the defendant
can be ordered to pay
triple the amount of money they are accused of obtaining fraudulently, as well
as any court costs and attorney fees incurred in pursuing the case.
With so much money potentially on the line in your No-Fault civil RICO
case, you are going to want to do all that you can to prevail. Failure
is not an option in this realm. The first step you should take is to
contact our law firm and discuss what to do next.
There is No Time to Lose – Act Now
As a defendant in a No-Fault civil RICO lawsuit, it is important to begin
mounting your defense to the lawsuit sooner rather than later. The automobile
insurer has a head start, as it is the insurer that initiates the action,
and you can assume that they have already dedicated their vast resources
in furtherance of their lawsuit before you have even received a copy of
the papers. The longer you delay, the more difficult it will be for you
