Long-Term Care Litigation

As caregivers of the nation’s most vulnerable adults, nursing homes and long-term care providers are among the most heavily regulated providers in the country. This government scrutiny can lead to hefty fines and sanctions when noncompliance issues are involved.

Our expertise is not simply through individual attorneys with long-term care experience, but rather integrated teams that include long-term care lawyers, paralegals and nurses with industry knowledge to investigate, evaluate and present a lawsuit for mediation, arbitration or trial.

Because of the strength of our case assessment across a variety of disciplines and our trial preparedness, we are able to position our clients for the most favorable case outcome through out-of-court settlements, alternative dispute resolution or trial.

Our lawyers have successfully provided skilled nursing facility defense, long-term care defense and also defense for aging services providers in state and federal courts in the Southeastern region and we have been involved in other jurisdictions throughout the United States for our clients. We recommend mediation or arbitration and have favorable results with these alternative means of resolving disputes.
