Consumer Fraud Lawyer - Hospital Records Overcharging Lawsuit

Shapiro Haber & Urmy LLP represented the Boston Law firm of Lubin & Meyer, P.C. in Lubin & Meyer P.C., et al. v. Hospital Correspondence Corporation, et al. in a lawsuit against numerous Massachusetts hospitals and their copy services, alleging excessive per-page copy charges for medical records requested by law firms representing current and former patients. The firm successfully argued that the charges violated a Massachusetts law regarding payment of a "reasonable" fee. The settlement included a substantial reduction in these copy service fees. A similar case that had been pending in Ohio was similarly settled.
