Healthcare Litigation

The healthcare litigation attorneys at Ekblom & Partners, LLP are focused on representing clients in the healthcare industry where technical and medical knowledge is required. Our team is dedicated to protecting the best interests of our clients and defending them in lawsuits related to professional liability, director and officers (D&O) liability, and employment matters.

We have extensive experience as healthcare litigation attorneys in state and federal courts and work hard to help our clients avoid litigation and minimize its impact. But when a lawsuit is unavoidable, Ekblom & Partners brings a wealth of experience to defend our clients and, when necessary, take a case to verdict.

Our attorneys represent healthcare providers, healthcare insurance companies, and medical facilities including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, physicians and physician groups, and surgeons who specialize in neurosurgery, heart surgery, ophthalmology, ENT, plastic surgery, and head and neck injuries. When healthcare professionals are targeted by plaintiffs’ attorneys, we provide a vigorous defense.

D&O, E&O, and Professional Liability Defense

Led by Founder and Partner Neil H. Ekblom, we defend healthcare providers and medical professionals in a wide range of disciplines against allegations including:

  • Medical Malpractice
  • Fraud and Abuse
  • Stark Law and False Claims Act Violations
  • Anti-Kickback Claims
  • Qui Tam Litigation
  • OPMC and DOH Claims and Investigations

Lawsuits against healthcare providers often assert claims of professional negligence (malpractice), allegations of violations of professional regulatory standards, or fraud. These claims are often defended under a directors and officers (D&O), errors and omissions (E&O), or professional liability insurance policy.

While each case is unique, our approach as healthcare litigation attorneys remains the same: We identify the problem facing our client and work hard to solve it.

Our lawyers recognize that communication is essential when the stakes are high. We work with our clients and their insurance carriers to identify the best strategy and vigorously defend against these claims while minimizing disruption to our clients.

Employment-Related Lawsuits

Ekblom & Partners also represents providers in the healthcare industry in employment-related matters, including claims that raise issues of:

  • Age Discrimination
  • Title VII Discrimination based on race, sex, national origin, or religion
  • Civil Rights Violations under Section 1981 and Section 1983
  • Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Violations of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Violations
  • ERISA Litigation

We routinely represent healthcare providers in investigations by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Civil Rights Commission, Department of Labor (DOL), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Regardless of whether the claim is under investigation or requires litigation, our healthcare attorneys will vigorously represent our clients. We regularly provide advice on risk management and are actively involved both pre-suit and throughout litigation.

Whether we are in court, before a regulatory agency, or offering advice to avoid litigation, we make every effort to handle employment-related claims efficiently and effectively.
