Handling Class Action Claims For HIPAA Violations

Your medical history is personal. You may not want anyone to know about injuries or illnesses that you have suffered in the past. State and federal laws protect this information, and impose significant penalties on those who wrongfully disclose it to third parties without your permission. In some cases, these repeated exposures may even lead to class action lawsuits against these doctors, hospitals, insurance companies and others who release your medical history.

At the Kansas City-based law firm of McShane & Brady, LLC, our lawyers have handled a number of class actions against those who have disclosed this information in violation of HIPAA laws. We are one of a few firms in the area that has experience with these types of cases. We will review your case and tell you exactly what we feel is the best approach to take to recover full compensation for you.

Handling Even The Most Complex Class Action Cases

One of the first things that we do when examining your situation is determine how many others may also be impacted by the disclosure of medical records. This is important, because if there are others who have also been harmed by the exposure, you may be able to bring a class action claim.

There are benefits to being part of a class in these types of cases. You will be able to gather more evidence that show acts of wrongdoing on the part of those who released the information without permission. You may also be able to recover more compensation due to the increased number of individuals in the class.

It is important to note that these cases require extensive investigations to determine if a class action is possible, and then collect the members of the class that wish to take part in the case. If you feel that you may have a claim for the wrongful disclosure of your health information, you should contact our attorneys as soon as possible so that we can begin our analysis on the appropriate action to take on your behalf.
