We understand the critical role Orthopedic Surgeons play in treating injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents and understand that surgical remedies can sometimes be the only option after conservative treatment fails. While you put your efforts into healing and recovery for your patients, let us help you get paid for the surgical procedures you perform. We represent Orthopedic Surgeons specializing in joint surgeries and spinal surgeries, and we are well versed in the underlying medicine of the diagnosis, treatment and surgical procedures you perform.

As an orthopedic surgeon, it is your priority to provide the highest level of care to treat and heal your patients. As you most likely have experienced, no-fault insurance companies are extremely difficult to deal with and make receiving payments almost impossible. They will look for any angle to deny a claim, sometimes, even claims lawfully owed to you. Many orthopedic surgeons are not aware that payment for their services is protected under NYS No-Fault Insurance Law.

Let the attorneys and paralegals at TonaLaw will deal with the insurance companies while you run your business! Our services allow you to spend more time on billable services. There are no risks or upfront payments, TonaLaw is a no-fee law firm, all of our fees are fixed by statute and paid for by the insurance companies. If we don’t win, you don’t pay, it’s that simple.

Our No-Fault Collection Process

During our initial consultation, we will inform you of the legal rights and remedies available to orthopedic surgeons available under New York State Insurance Law. We aim to make the no-fault collection process as effortless as possible, closing most cases in 210 days or less. In some instances, clients will begin receiving no-fault payments in as little as 30 days from the initial file date. In order to begin processing claims, we will need the following documents:

No-Fault Checklist

  1. Assignment of benefits
  2. Outstanding bills, a billing ledger and proof of mailing if available
  3. Corresponding denials
  4. All medical records, reports, notes, and exams you have on the patient pertaining to the date of the accident
  5. A letter of medical necessity for treatment and/or a rebuttal letter to the peer review/ IME (optional but recommended)
