Case Management Technology That Keeps Clients Informed 24/7
We believe in maintaining open communication with our clients. Our team is always available by phone or email to answer any questions. We are open early and stay late for the convenience of all our medical providers that may work at all times of the day. You can speak to a well-qualified PIP team member from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Judd Shaw Injury Law also recognizes that you want to keep up-to-date with the status of your files, so we created a client portal that allows live, accurate, and current information, 24/7. Our clients can “virtually look into” their files anytime and are notified electronically when their file moves to the next stage of the Forthright process.
Security is important, and our system delivers bank-grade encryption to ensure your data stays safe. Clients are capable of managing all referrals, in real time, and in one central location, from any computer. With search technology, a dashboard reveals critical information we know is important to our clients.
We find that our clients enjoy receiving our eStatus Update Notifications and it frees them up from requesting statuses or information on a certain matter.

What is the process for New Jersey No-Fault PIP arbitration?
When a PIP insurance company either refuses to make a payment or pays the bill incorrectly and the claim has been appealed, we will file a lawsuit against the PIP insurer to collect the money you may be owed.
As the Claimant, you file a Demand for Arbitration with Forthright in accordance with Forthright’s NJ No-Fault PIP Arbitration Rules. The demand could seek benefits over $1,000.00, which would provide an oral hearing by the parties. Alternatively, if the claim is less than $1,000.00, then the matter would proceed on-the-papers and without an in-person proceeding.
There is ZERO out-of-pocket cost for our clients. We represent medical providers throughout the entire state of New Jersey and have collected millions of dollars from insurance companies. If we don’t collect money, there is no charge.
Forthright notifies all parties of the arbitration with an initiation letter and will assign a Dispute Resolution Professional (DRP) from its panel to decide the issue. Judd Shaw Injury Law regularly appears statewide and before all DRPs in the north, central, and southern regions of New Jersey. For in-person proceedings, Forthright will set a date, time, and location for the hearing. The Judd Shaw Injury Law system will provide the information to you so that you know when to expect your date and the date of any arbitration award.
At the time of the hearing, the parties attend the in-person proceeding before the DRP and present their evidence. The DRP considers the parties’ evidence and issues a written decision within 45 days from the closing date. At an on-the-papers proceeding, the parties will submit briefs and a DRP will render a decision without oral arguments.
Our law firm’s process follows Forthright’s Roadmap, but does so electronically, which provides for faster service to clients. Whether you provide matters by hard copy or email, paperwork is scanned into our firm’s secure computer network, eliminating the need for follow-up requests for paperwork.
No Recovery For You, No Recovery For Us
Judd Shaw Injury Law generates money by dealing with a high volume of PIP files and investigating each file to find out if money is owed. It’s possible to collect money on your old files. Our team reviews every file we receive carefully to ensure that we have all necessary documents and that the appeals process has exhausted, and then we seek every dollar you are owed from insurance companies.
Our detailed screening is required because if YOU don’t get paid on a claim, then WE don’t get paid. If our office has to file a New Jersey PIP No-Fault Demand for Arbitration against an insurance company, then state law requires the insurance company to pay for our attorney’s fees. We never charge medical providers for our attorney’s fees.
