Catastrophic Injury

We have represented individuals and businesses harmed by the negligence or intentional acts of others. We will aggressively hold accountable those who are responsible for injuring our clients. If the party who harmed you was the United States, you may be able to seek damages under the Federal Tort Claims Act (“FTCA”). Our lawyers have secured tens-of-millions of dollars in settlements and trial verdicts by aggressively pursuing all responsible parties, including a record-setting $10 million jury verdict in a sexual assault-premises liability case.

Health care fraud is a major national focus of government enforcement, focusing on Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare. Our attorneys are well-versed in dealing with Department of Justice (“DOJ”) prosecutors around the country, including DOJ’s Health Care Fraud Strike Force. Utilizing both criminal tools (search warrants, grand jury subpoenas) and civil tools (civil investigative demands, administrative subpoenas, and inspection warrants), the DOJ has nearly limitless resources to pursue health care fraud investigations. We know how DOJ will try to prosecute a case. We can help design a strategy to deliver you results.

You may also have claims against them. We have litigated civil cases with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake and are ready to represent businesses when the stakes are at their highest.
