If your healthcare provider has told or given your medical information to another person without your permission, you can sue for damages.
HIPAA (the Health Information Portability and Affordability Act) is the federal law governing your private health information. HIPAA gives rules and requirements to health care workers including doctors, nurses, hospitals, insurance companies and any other agent who deals with private health information.
McShane & Brady is the leading HIPAA violation law firm in Kansas City.
Over the years, we have recovered millions of dollars to clients and many see our firm as a leader in this emerging legal field.
The most common HIPAA violations are:
-People working within the breached organization were responsible for slightly more than one-third (37%) of HIPAA breaches reported in 2017.
-Cyber attacks originating from outside the organization also caused slightly more than one-third (37%) of healthcare breaches reported last year.
NO ONE is allowed to have your medical information other than you and your doctor, unless certain conditions are met. Those conditions are as follows: your expressed (written) authorization allowing a third party to access your information OR an order from the Court.
In today’s age of technology and computer hacking, there has been a massive increase in the number of HIPAA violations.
From hospitals to insurance companies, proper precautions and training have not been made to secure these records. Once public, your information is out there for everyone to see. McShane & Brady is fighting to hold those responsible accountable.
McShane & Brady is one of the only firms in the States of Missouri and Kansas litigating these causes of action.
HIPAA laws work together with state laws to protect patient privacy and give recourse to citizens when a healthcare provider has released medical records or information without proper authorization.
If you feel that your private health information has been given to someone without your permission or an order from the Court, you may have a lawsuit.
