Reliable Denver Lawyers Zealously Represent Medical Professionals and Institutions
Respected Colorado law firm fights allegations of healthcare law violations
Healthcare providers are required to follow a slew of state and federal laws that govern every aspect of patient care and business operations. At Charles H. Torres, P.C. in Denver, we help medical professionals throughout Colorado respond to many types of healthcare law claims, including allegations of wrongdoing brought by federal and state healthcare law regulators and accusations of medical malpractice initiated by patients. Whether a medical malpractice complaint was filed with the licensing board or your office needs to respond to an FDA Warning Letter, we will work to resolve your matter using tried and true strategies that best protect your interests.
Accomplished attorneys navigate federal and state agency enforcement investigations
Multiple state and federal agencies enforce healthcare laws through administrative proceedings, civil litigation and, in some case, criminal charges. The Food and Drug Agency (FDA) is often involved in these enforcement efforts. The Office of the Inspector General is tasked with investigating medical providers for allegations of Medicare and Medicaid fraud under the False Claims Act (FCA), which can result in civil and criminal penalties. In addition, pharmacies and other related businesses can find themselves in litigation with the FDA and may face product seizures, recalls or injunctions and consent decrees. We have more than three decades of experience defending targets of FCA and FDA investigations in court and know how to effectively defend clients against these allegations.
Experienced counselors adeptly counter medical malpractice claims
Doctors are required to uphold a professional standard of care when treating patients, which requires any procedure to fall within accepted practices utilized by other similarly situated physicians. When a bad outcome occurs, the question of whether the treating doctor has legal responsibility for the patient’s negative result is often asked. Medical malpractice claims are complicated and can severely damage a physician’s career. We have extensive experience representing physicians in front of medical and hospital boards and will vigorously work to obtain the best possible result.
Reputable advocates review clients’ billing and business practices
From solo practitioners to large hospital complexes, each type of medical provider must follow the laws regulating billing and business operations. Allegations of double billing, billing for procedures that were not provided, or billing for unnecessary treatments can lead to civil and/or criminal sanctions. In addition, HIPAA rules tightly regulate when and how patient information may be disseminated and disclosed. Violating these and other related laws can expose your organization to significant consequences. We will help you put safeguards in place to reduce the risk of investigation or litigation, and in the event a potential violation has been alleged, provide a strong and forceful defense.
