North Carolina Attorney General Office Complaint - North Carolina Doctors and Lawyers defrauding insurance companies and the state could care less
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- After being injured in N.C. I hired a attorney to represent me and to look out for my rights. This Lawyer had me go to a Neurologist for a independent medical evaluation. The Doctor wanted $750.00 Cash or certified check.My wife and I paid the doctor and we sat down in a exam room where he asked me a couple of questions. He then stated that he and the lawyer have been working together for years and he would write up a report to get me much more money. He performed no test not even checking my vital statistics or even touching me. But yet he states in his medical examination that he performed numerous testing and even checked my vital statistics. Shortly after leaving the doctors office I was called by the Lawyer to see how it went and when I told her he did nothing but ask a couple of questions and stated that he would write up the report to get me all the money he could like the lawyer wanted. The Lawyer told me and I quote "That is why I have been using him all these years is because he and I have a agreement that he will provide statements that make my clients case worth more.
After reporting this to the N.C.State Bar and the N.C. Medical board along with the N.C.S.B.I and the Governors office Nothing has been done and it is all swept under the carpet.It does not matter that they are defrauding the insurance companies or causing financial damage and mental stress to the injured party and their families.North Carolina just sits back and does nothing about this but let it continue.
The least the State could do is investigate these type of complaints, charge the lawyers and doctors with fraud and take their license along with compensate the person and their family that has been harmed by their actions as they can cause life long problems for the victims.
