HIPAA Violation – Wrongful Disclosure of Medical Records

Has a healthcare provider released your private medical information without your permission? We are handling cases that involve the wrongful disclosure of a patient’s medical records in violation of HIPAA. This includes, but is not limited to, the wrongful disclosure of HIV/AIDS medical records.  HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. Missouri Revised Statute Section 191.656 provides statutory provisions (law) that must be followed by healthcare providers concerning information known to, and records containing information held or maintained by, any person, or by any agency, department, or political subdivision of the state concerning an individual’s HIV infection status or the results of any individual’s HIV testing, which shall be strictly confidential and only disclosed in certain circumstances in accordance with the law.  Mogab and Hughes Attorneys, P.C. has successfully handled cases against medical providers who have violated the statute and have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of our clients.

Wright Medical to pay $11M in Hip Implant Lawsuit

A jury has ordered Wright Medical to pay $11 million to a woman who alleged that she suffered from a defective hip implant. The award, which includes $1 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages, was granted to the plaintiff at a recent bellwether trial. The lawsuit was filed by the woman back in 2013 and alleged that her Conserve hip implant came loose and caused tissue damage. The Atlanta jury ruled that the plaintiff had a defective hip implant and that Wright misrepresented the device’s safety.
