Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Litigation is any legal action taken by a medical provider to try to be repaid by an insurance company for medical care that was provided to a person who was in a vehicular accident.
Generally, accident victims go to emergency care facilities, chiropractors, MRI centers, hospitals, all kinds of medical facilities for help after an accident.
What often happens is that medical providers can’t get the insurance money from the insurance companies. Cases pile up and after several years, some medical providers just give up despite holding onto hundreds or even thousands of cases.

Contingency fee means that the client pays legal fees when the lawyer and case brings in money from the legal actions taken. Reed immediately begins work on the case to pursue a legal action that will yield financial results. Clients meanwhile are not billed, have to write a check, or pay by credit card to get a case moving. Every case is reviewed and there is no guarantee that it will qualify or be accepted as a contingency fee case but you should find out through talking with Reed.
