Hospital accuses group of doctors of breach of contract

Posted by William J. Cook | Mar 07, 2019 | 0 Comments

There are a multitude of scenarios in which two or more companies in Florida or elsewhere may find themselves caught up in intense contract disputes. Whether a business relationship goes south or one party feels that the other has failed to uphold its end of the agreement, knowing how to handle such a dispute can be a complex process. A group of doctors in another state are facing allegations of breach of contract after claiming a hospital owes them just under $2 million.

The lawsuit reportedly stems from an agreement in which the hospital reached an agreement to allow the group to to handle the facilities emergency room. The group reportedly claims that at some point, the hospital decided to stop paying them for services rendered. They also assert that upon attempting to speak with the necessary parties about the issue, the hospital suddenly decided to terminate the contract.

However, the hospital asserts that its decision to end the arrangement stems from performance and behavioral issues. The facility states that these issues have caused it to suffer extensive monetary losses and it says that the group's behavior has damaged the facility's reputation substantially. It has since filed a lawsuit against the group accusing them of failing to perform contractual obligations in a satisfactory manner.

Contract disputes can be hotly-contestable matters that may leave all parties involved seeking guidance on their available options for protecting their legal rights. Those who encounter breach of contract disputes could choose to seek advice on how to prepare for what comes next by retaining the services of an experienced attorney. An attorney can address the situation and assist a client in Florida in forming a plan to protect his or her interests through the proper channels.
