How to Sue Quest Diagnostics in Small Claims Court
If you have a problem, most likely a billing issue, that you are unable to resolve by complaining to the company, you may need to escalate to filing a lawsuit in small claims court. The maximum dollar amount and specific process for going to small claims court will vary by state, so you'll need to confirm the details. These are the steps you can expect:
1. Visit the court to file in person.
You'll usually need to file your claim in person at the courthouse. A court clerk will process your forms.
2. Fill out forms.
You'll start by filling out forms to open your case. Check to see if your court system has these available online so you can fill them out ahead of time. You'll need to include the defendant's address, so make sure you know the location of Quest's corporate headquarters, which is:
500 Plaza Drive
Secaucus, NJ 07094
3. Pay filing and service fees.
You'll need to pay fees for both filing your case and for serving the defendant with notice of the lawsuit. The amount of these fees will vary depending on your location, and income-based waivers may be available.
4. Receive a hearing date.
The court clerk will schedule your hearing and give you a case number. Make sure to keep track of this information.
5. Attend your hearing in court.
Small claims court is usually designed for individuals to be able to represent themselves. If you plan on doing this, make sure to have your evidence organized and prepare what you'll say during the hearing.
