Allstate Files Suit Against Florida Brain Injury Hospital

Recently, DisabilityInsight.com posted an article regarding alleged abuse at the Florida Institute for Neurologic Rehabilitation (FINR). Allstate has subsequently filed suit against FINR for $7.6 million in unnecessary medical services.

The suit alleges that FINR falsified medical records in order to recieve millions from Allstate while failing to provide care for its patients and merely "warehousing" them. The insurance money received by FINR was as a result of the many patients the facility houses from Michigan, a state in which no-fault coverage for auto accidents does not have a cap.

This is another disturbing development at this for-profit facility designed to house, treat and care for patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
