Healthcare providers have progressively more litigation eating up their defense funds.
As our healthcare provider clients know, there’s a whole lot going on behind the scenes that keeps the industry running. Those complexities – along with shifting political winds – also mean the industry is in constant flux. As such, healthcare litigation is abundant, and continues to increase, not only in the number of cases, but in its scope, frequency — and stakes.
Interestingly, many of the same types of healthcare cases have existed for decades. What has changed most is the scale – namely, increasing class-action certification – which has caused settlement costs to skyrocket for insurers, medical device companies, and others. As a result, even healthcare giants are scraping their defense-fund coffers, while such high litigation costs can threaten the very existence of smaller companies.
