Improvements in technology and medical care have increased life expectancy by a considerable amount. Alongside these improvements, health care costs have risen dramatically. Because the health of the people in a nation reflects the health of the nation itself, health care law is vital for the stability of the Unites States. Preserving public health is a primary duty of the state. Health regulations and laws are therefore almost all state based. Many states delegate authority tosubordinate govermental agencies such as boards of health. These boards are created by legislative acts. Federal health law focuses on the activity of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It administers a wide variety of agencies and programs, like providing financial assistance to needy individuals; conducting medical and scientific research; providing health care and advocacy services; and enforcing laws and regulations related to human services. An important branch of the HHS is the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA), which oversees the Medicare and Medicaid Programs. Their goal is to ensure that elderly and needy individuals receive proper medical care.

    Legal Facts
  • In 1998 there were 208 statewide general and limited jurisdiction trial court systems in the United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. About 9,065 full time authorized judges served in the 71 statewide trial court systems of general jurisdiction alone.

  • State courts sentenced 32% of convicted felons to straight probation with no jail or prison time to serve in 2000. Felons sentenced to a State prison in 2000 had an average sentence of 4 1/2 years but were likely to serve 55% of that sentence - or just 2 1/2 years - before release, assuming that 2000 release policies continue in effect. The average sentence to local jail was just over 6 months. The average probation sentence was about 3 years in 2000.




  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Always find out how much experience the lawyer has:
    Before choosing a lawyer, you must ascertain how much experience the lawyer has. A lawyer with more than 8 years of experience is good, 5-7 years is just fine, 3-4 years is somewhat doubtful and lesser experience than that is not acceptable. There is no doubt that the years of practice are important in sharpening the layers skills as well as his standing in the eyes of the court.

  • Get full clarity on the fee structure:
    Lawyers may charge you for every action they take while defending you or representing you in court. This could amount to hundreds of dollars an hour. While choosing your lawyer, keep in mind that you must discuss the fees in detail so that there are no hidden costs to be discovered later. The fee will greatly depend upon the nature of your case, and whether the lawyer is comfortable with it therefore the details must be ascertained before hand in black and white.
