ABA Chiropractic, P.C. v. GEICO General Insurance Co.

Supreme Court of New York, Second Department

November 26, 2013

ABA Chiropractic, P.C. as Assignee of YOLANDA RIVERA, Appellant,
v.
GEICO General Insurance Company, Respondent.

PRESENT:: PESCE, P.J., ALIOTTA and SOLOMON, JJ

Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Kings County (Dawn Jimenez Salta, J.), entered August 10, 2011. The order, insofar as appealed from as limited by the brief, granted defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.

ORDERED that the order, insofar as appealed from, is reversed, with $30 costs, and defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is denied.

In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff moved for summary judgment and defendant cross-moved for summary judgment dismissing the complaint on the ground that the services at issue were not medically necessary. Plaintiff appeals, as limited by its brief, from so much of an order of the Civil Court as granted defendant's cross motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.

Upon a review of the record, we find that there is a triable issue of fact regarding the medical necessity of the services at issue (see Zuckerman v City of New York, 49 N.Y.2d 557 [1980]). Accordingly, the order, insofar as appealed from, is reversed and defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint is denied. We decline plaintiff's request to limit the issues for trial (see CPLR 3212 [g]).

Pesce, P.J., Aliotta and Solomon, JJ., concur.
