Accidents and injuries occur in nursing homes and assisted living facilities every day. Despite the precautions an assisted living facility takes, a resident may fall and break a bone or develop a pressure ulcer. Often, this may say more about a resident's condition than it does about the facility's quality of care. Despite this fact, nursing facilities are subject to expensive lawsuits that seek millions of dollars in damages.

Our attorneys have defended assisted living facilities, nursing staff, and correctional care providers against charges of neglect and abuse. We understand how damaging these lawsuits can be. That is why we get to work right away, minimizing the issues and working toward favorable resolutions in an efficient manner. We will work to shield our clients from risk and liability, while also helping them maintain their reputation in the community.
