REPRESENTATIVE MATTERS

Each lawsuit handled by Shannon depends on its unique facts and particular legal circumstances. The following are a list of results obtained by Shannon on behalf of her clients:

  • Represented a medical practice in this complex litigation, involving a claim against an insurance carrier for over $284k in unpaid medical bills for services provided on an emergency basis. The insurance carrier moved to dismiss the case based on theory that the claims were preempted by ERISA. The Court denied Defendants’ motion and allowed the state based claims to proceed. The case ultimately settled in principle shortly thereafter.
  • Represented a chiropractic practice against an insurance company alleging that the referrals made by the chiropractor to acupuncturists were fraudulent as a matter of law based on the plain language of a relevant statute. Based on our firm’s opposition papers and argument, the Court denied the insurance company’s motion finding that defendants did not unlawfully refer for treatment.
  • Defended a surgery center and its owners against claims of insurance fraud where the insurance company was seeking damages of over $13 million. The case proceeded to comprehensive e-discovery and the exchange of well over a million pages of documents. In providing and demanding key discovery, Brach Eichler was ultimately able to resolve the case favorably to the clients.
