Miller et al. v. Citizens Ins Co. et al.

Supreme Court Grants to Consider Propriety of Offsetting Plaintiff Attorneys' Fees by Amount of Medical Lien Asserted

The Supreme Court granted leave to appeal in this case regarding whether a medical care provider that is not a party to a fee agreement with plaintiff’s counsel may be liable for all or a portion of counsel’s fee and the basis for such liability, if any; and (2) if there is such liability, the

manner in which the amount of the liability is to be determined. Detroit Medical Center's amount at issue for services rendered to the plaintiff was reduced by the plaintiff’s attorney fee award recovered from the defendants. This case is likely to impact medical providers, their liens, and reimbursement for medical services provided, when they are not parties to the fee agreements with plaintiff’s counsel. If you have any questions regarding this case, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks, Carson Tucker
