Personal Injury Advance of Expenses.

 

February 23, 1978

 

In a personal injury suit, it is not improper for an attorney to advance the fees charged by a medical clinic for release of his client's pertinent medical reports, provided the client remains ultimately liable for such expenses. [See II: DR:5-103(B) and DR:7-108(C).]
