Nursing Home and Long-Term Care Facilities
Bartlett LLP has a specialized group of experienced attorneys who regularly provide counsel to our nursing home and long-term care facility clients on matters such as risk assessment and regulatory obligations.
Our attorneys’ expertise in defending traditional medical malpractice cases is essential to the development of winning defense and risk management strategies for our clients. Through critical analysis of relevant regulations and statutes, our attorneys preclude plaintiffs from taking advantage of a favorable statutory framework, one which lowers the burden of proof and extends the sphere of recovery to include such items as punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
Our attorneys explore causation and damages issues—drawing from a comprehensive, professional knowledge of the medical field—which can be used to reduce or eliminate the nature and scope of a plaintiff’s claims either during pre-trial proceedings or at trial.
