Lowe & Evander, P.A. has handled HIPAA cyberliability/ investigations/complaints defense cases in the following two categories: 1) a complaint-driven investigation; and 2) client discovered internal breaches.
In complaint-driven investigations, a healthcare professional generally receives a complaint from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/ Office for Civil Rights stemming from a patient complaint. The firm works diligently to prepare a sound defense, but seeks first to get the case dismissed. Should the case not be dismissed, the firm seeks to take it before an administrative law judge for appeal.
Internal Breach Discovered
When a client discovers an internal breach, cyberliability issues frequently involve privacy regulations, infringement of intellectual property, and patient notification. If the records for more than 500 patients are suspected of being compromised, the firm works with the client to activate required notifications to affected patients and the media. Regardless of the size of the breach, the attorneys at Michael R. Lowe, P.A. are here to walk you through the process.
Experience gained by the firm’s attorneys and paralegals in HIPAA cyber liability cases has allowed members of the team to participate in training roles in seminars throughout the state. If you or your practice have experienced a breach, the staff at Lowe & Evander, P.A. is here to assist.
