Quantum Meruit Claims

Quantum Meruit can be basically translated from the Latin to mean "the value of services rendered".  This is a type of claim which can be made to compensate individuals who provided services or assistance to a dying person in exchange for a promise of a gift upon death.   Unfortunately, the Will often has not been amended to provide for payment of this gift.  Often there is also no contract for payment.  However, legally these claims have been recognized and can succeed.
