Healthcare Litigation
For more than fifty years, Wise Carter’s attorneys have defended physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers in professional liability litigation. Several of the appellate cases that form the basis of current medical professional liability law were handled by Wise Carter attorneys, and the civil justice reform legislation that altered the landscape of medical malpractice law was co-written by a member of the Firm who served in the state legislature. Wise Carter’s broad experience in healthcare litigation also includes defending Qui Tam whistleblower cases under the Federal False Claims Act, as well as certificate of need and other administrative and regulatory disputes involving CMS, the Division of Medicaid, the State Department of Health and other state and federal regulatory agencies. The firm’s healthcare attorneys also regularly handle litigation involving provider contract disputes with vendors, medical staff privilege issues, and provider advocacy before the medical licensure board, board of nursing, and other administrative agencies.
