Nursing Home/Assisted Living Facility Liability

Lawsuits alleging liability against nursing homes and/or assisted living facilities can be particularly problematic.  This is typically because of the age and infirmities of the plaintiff.   These cases can also be emotionally charged. Our experience has shown that potential jurors often expect that a facility’s attention to, and treatment of, the elderly be consistent to that which is given to infants. Consequently, jurors scrutinize treatments and take a dim view of any harm that befalls an elderly patient.  Nevertheless, Heard & Medack has successfully defended these matters in litigation and at trial.  Because of our experience, we are able to recognize and anticipate how a jury might view cases ranging from basic slip and falls to more complicated matters involving treatment decisions and bed sore care. Although these cases can be dangerous, we help our clients evaluate each case and arrive at a plan to resolve the case as expeditiously as possible.
