HEALTHCARE LITIGATION

 

          Representation of both consumers and providers in claims arising from the rendering of healthcare services; representation of healthcare providers and insurers in connection with regulatory compliance.

          The following are examples of our representation in this practice area:

            Sprague & Sprague successfully defended a large health care insurance organization against claims of "excessive surplus" in a case of first impression in Pennsylvania regarding the application of principles of exclusive jurisdiction and the "filed rate" doctrine.

            We successfully defended a surgeon in a hospital staff privileges summary suspension case in which the surgeon not only was vindicated of the charges by his peers, but also received a multi-million dollar award for his monetary damages.
