Nursing home litigation is widely recognized as one of the fastest-growing areas of health care litigation. An aging population, expanded government programs, a growing awareness of the potential rewards for litigation, and increased public attention have all contributed to the growth of litigation in this field. Today, billions of dollars are exchanged in the form of settlements and awards.
All of the many recent decisions in this area play an important role in governing how future complaints are handled. They set precedent, dictate damages, and have a far-reaching effect on the practice, in general. Our all-star panel of health care attorneys and judges discuss these important cases, including Scampone v. Grane and Grammer v. Kane, and consider their impact on the practice. They also offer a wealth of practical tips on choosing the theory of your case, conducting discovery, and participating in alternative dispute resolution. Learn how you, as counsel, can utilize the changing landscape to benefit your clients.
