11/3/2020 Settlement Update:
The deadline to enroll into the Miller Firm Roundup Settlement Program was October 31, 2020. We are pleased to inform you that over 93% of clients have elected to opt-in to the settlement. Over the past several months, our attorneys and staff have worked to review and finalize tens of thousands of pages of enrollment forms and millions of pages of medical records to timely submit the eligibility materials to the Settlement Administrator before the deadline.
If you submitted your opt-in forms before the October 31st deadline, your materials have been sent to the Settlement Administrator/Special Master for their final decision as to whether you are eligible to participate in the settlement. We expect that they will make an eligibility decision for all claimants before December 1, 2020.
If we are missing any information then we will contact you. Please respond to our requests and submit any missing information as soon as possible. FAILURE TO CURE THESE DEFICIENCIES COULD RESULT IN A DENIAL OF YOUR CLAIM.
The most common deficiency that we have seen is not having a spouse signature on the Release (or a signed Spousal Indemnification Agreement if your spouse, or former spouse, is unable or unwilling to sign the Release). If you have not had your spouse sign the Release or have not provided a Spousal Indemnification Agreement, please contact our office immediately.
As we await the settlement administrator’s eligibility decision, we will be submitting your allocation materials that will be used to allocate the total points/settlement amounts for each eligible claimant.
Our goal is to begin sending initial settlement payments out in the first quarter of 2021. However, the date that initial settlement payments can be sent will be determined by the settlement administrator and the Special Master.
We will continue to post significant updates on the settlement on the website. Please visit the website for general updates rather than call our office, so that our staff can focus on expediting the settlement process. Rest assured our office is wholly committed to ensuring this settlement moves as quickly as possible and we are confident that our clients will be among the first in the nation to start receiving payments under the settlement. We greatly appreciate your trust in us to handle this important case on your behalf.
