CPH Nurses Insurance Cases
The attorneys of The Health Law Firm routinely represent nurses, advance registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), nurse midwives (CNMs), and certified nurse's assistants (CNAs) in many different legal matters.
We regularly represent nurses at Board of Nursing meetings, in Department of Health (DOH) investigations, in Intervention Project for Nurses (IPN) matters, in hospital disputes, in defense of allegations of HIPAA privacy violations, in employment disputes and in many other matters.
We routinely represent nurses, physicians and dentists in defending against malpractice claims, civil lawsuits, administrative complaints, peer review actions, Department of Health investigations, medicare audits, medicaid audits, and other matters. In cases in which the health care professional has professional liability insurance or general liability insurance which provides coverage for such matters, we will seek to obtain coverage by your insurance company and will attempt to have your legal fees and expenses covered by your insurance company. We will agree to take an assignment of your insurance policy proceeds in order to be able to submit our bills directly to your insurance company, if your insurance company will allow this.
Many of these insurers will pay our firm to represent you in the legal defense of an investigation or complaint against your professional (nursing, medical, dental, psychology, mental health counselor) license or for an administrative hearing involving professional discipline. Contact us early.
In doing so, we have represented the insureds of the following insurance companies:
■ CPH & Associates Insurance
■ The Doctors Company (TDC)
■ ACE USA Insurance Company
■ Dentists Advantage Insurance Company
■ State Farm Insurance Company
■ First Professionals Insurance Company (FPIC)
■ Firemen's Fund Insurance Company (FFIC)
■ Healthcare Professionals Service Organization (HPSO)
■ NORCAL Mutual Insurance Company
■ Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company (PMIC)
■ Philadelphia Insurance Company
■ And many others
For those insurance companies who with whom we do not have an existing relationship, at your request, we will submit our information to the insurance company and will agree to work for rates comparable to the other firms that the insurance company uses in the area, if the insurance company will agree to this.
We have also been retained to defend physicians and businesses in general litigation matters and business litigation matters by some of the insurance companies named above.
We have routinely been retained to represent nurses insured by Nurses Service Organization (NSO). All of our attorneys are members of The American Association of Nurse Attorneys (TAANA).
