HIPAA does not provide for lawsuits by private persons to enforce its provisions or to sue for remedies for breaches.
It may be that there are other causes of action (bases for suit) that could be utilized to enable suit in lieu of HIPAA. You should consult with a local civil rights attorney to make that determination.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
