The aging of ‘baby boomers’ is creating the need for more skilled nursing and other living facilities. Along with this growth comes an increase in claims of neglect and abuse. Accidents and injuries may occur even when the facility and its staff provide care that meets or exceeds the standards of the industry. Nonetheless, these injuries and others are the subject of costly lawsuits brought against nursing homes, adult care facilities, assisted-living residences and other long-term care institutions.
FP&R understands the importance of resolving issues quickly, getting cases dismissed early whenever possible, and providing risk management advice designed to prevent these lawsuits in the future. Our primary goals are to minimize the time and expense of litigation and to help them avoid unnecessary risk and liability.
