Health Law

Health law touches one of the largest industries in the U.S. economy and intensely personal human problems. Lawyers are involved in the health field in many ways including representing hospitals, other health care providers such as doctors and their practices, patients who claim to be injured in the health care setting, insurance companies, and some administrative agencies at the state and federal levels.
