Trial Win: New Jersey Case Dismissed for Lack of Prosecution

This was an accepted claim with authorized treatment. Permanency reports were exchanged, the case was conferenced and the Judge of Compensation gave her opinion as to value. The client granted authority as per the Judge’s recommendation and we presented an offer to the Petitioner’s counsel in November of 2018. The attorney delayed for months with various excuses, including “my client didn’t call me back”, and “I haven’t had the chance to speak to him yet”, etc. We filed a Motion to Dismiss after hearing one too many excuses. LOIS attorney Joe Jones aggressively pursued the dismissal Motion and was able to argue that the case should be dismissed as the petitioner and/or the attorney had no interest in moving the case forward.

The Judge agreed enough was enough and dismissed the case.
