Here's a story
(subscription required) about a NY scam similar to the Miami scam mentioned Tuesday. A lawyer and seven employees of a public hospital were arrested for running a scam where medical information of auto accident victims was taken by the hospital employees and sold to the lawyer, who used the information to file personal injury suits and get the patients unnecessary care at clinics that were part of the scam. The scam works particularly well in "no-fault" auto insurance states like NY.
