Conal Doyle is an award-winning personal injury and insurance coverage attorney located in Beverly Hills, California, who has now settled two class action lawsuits in just over two years involving United Healthcare and Anthem Inc. He has had a transtibial amputation for fifty years and has an encyclopedic knowledge of prosthetics and all issues facing the O&P patient population.
While he is not the only attorney making an impact on the profession, Doyle’s work has been groundbreaking in impact litigation involving both individual and class action cases. He has obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries in personal injury and medical malpractice cases, as well as class action lawsuits against major payers for unfair policies and coverage denials of prosthetic services. He is also one of the few people who have an amputation to have argued before the United States Supreme Court. I wanted to know more about the lawsuits and the person who litigated them. Read on to see what I learned from him. The conversation is edited for clarity.
