Healthcare Practice Group Wins Appeal on Behalf of Tampa General Hospital

March 20, 2018

Roig Lawyers’ Healthcare Practice Group scored an appellate win on behalf of Tampa General Hospital (TGH).

The Federal 11th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a lengthy and substantive opinion, agreeing with Roig’s legal arguments across the board and affirming the district court’s grant of judgment as a matter of law in favor of TGH. The 11th Circuit analyzed the evidence and agreed with TGH and the district court that TGH never became a primary payer because there was never an award of medical expenses nor an agreement to cover the medical expenses post-arbitration. For the same reasons, the court agreed that TGH was not unjustly enriched.
