I would like to know how I go about finding a lawyer to file a case . Or should I file a complaint with the Attorney General in the state of mass or where?
Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

If I may ask, what type of a case do you wish to file? Are you looking for pro-bono assistance?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for requesting me today.

If you tell me which city and county this occurred in I will see if I can find a referral service for you.

Well I am not sure what type of a case I should persue. I am very upset at Mass Gen Hos for letting this be able to happen , and I am very upset at the whole thing. My hospital stay was a nightmare I was out of work for 4 weeks and now they tell me someone that I work with got into my personal medical records. I work 2 jobs and I am just surviving what should be my next step ? I live in Quincy Mass justsouth of Boston.

The Boston Bar Association has a Lawyer referral service available here:

There also is a statewide referral service available here:

Because you are both a patient and an employee, you should look for an attorney who not only handles patient rights cases but employment cases also.

Since the Attorney General has the responsibility of overseeing and enforcing HIPAA you can contact his office also. The phone number for the Boston office is Phone:(NNN) NNN-NNNN

Here are links to a recent AG's press release showing a recent HIPAA case they pursued.

Nothing precludes you from contacting a private lawyer as well as the AG. Good luck in pursuing your case.
