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.

MOGAB & HUGHES ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING FARMERS & COMPANIES SUING SYNGENTA AG

Mogab & Hughes Attorneys, P.C. is representing farmers and companies suing Syngenta AG in lawsuits related to financial losses suffered when China rejected corn shipments containing a genetically modified seed developed by the agribusiness but not approved for use by China.  We are filing suit on behalf of farmers and businesses seeking monetary and punitive damages from Syngenta, which is based in Switzerland and has operations in the United States.  Syngenta has caused damages to U.S. farmers, grain handlers and exporters, and Syngenta’s conduct in marketing, distributing and selling unapproved corn seed violates the legal standards of the market place because the primary market risk falls on U.S. farmers, grain handlers and exporters and not on Syngenta.  We believe that Syngenta was negligent by “prematurely” selling the GMO seed before it was approved by countries that are major markets for U.S. corn export.  China, a major buyer of U.S. corn, began rejecting imports in November of 2013 after its officials found evidence of a genetically modified corn seed developed by Syngenta that China had not approved.

If you or a family member has a potential lawsuit against Syngenta, please contact Mogab & Hughes Attorneys, P.C. right away at 314-241-4477.
