Health Care Litigation

Our attorneyslitigators offer executives, physicians, business owners, and entities such as medical labs, pharmacies, medical services distributors, and hospitals extensive litigation and courtroom experience.

What makes healthcare Litigation Unique from Commercial Litigation

Litigations associated with the healthcare industry, indeed the second most regulated industry in the United States, intrinsically define a higher level of complexity to any case.  Normal business litigation centers on whether or not someone committed a tort or breached a contract, as well as on procedural rules. Generally, healthcare litigation encompasses these same topics, but also, litigation strategies for healthcare cases need to consider additional factors above and beyond the common procedural and legal considerations. Showing up in court with an attorney who handles a healthcare case the same as an everyday commercial matter may end up in a disastrous outcome.

In the event that you have been confronted with healthcare litigation, don’t put your case in the hands of just any random corporate attorney.  The fundamental element needed for winning healthcare court cases is a merger of superior trial skills with a profound knowledge of the relevant healthcare legislation and applicable regulations.  Frequently, opposing parties in healthcare cases will do their best to gain the upper hand by putting forth allegations of healthcare fraud, HIPAA breaches, and violations of the Stark Law or federal and state anti-kickback rules.  Should this kind of thing happen to you, your best bet is to enlist attorneys who are capable of quickly and decisively responding to the accusations without creating unwarranted escalation in a public manner that may attract the attention of the federal government.  Failing to recognize these possible threats can end up in extremely unfavorable outcomes for all parties involved.
