Nursing Home Liability

MDAFP is proud of the outstanding reputation we have built as staunch and dedicated defenders of nursing homes, assisted living, and elder care providers against negligence and malpractice claims.

Allegations of nursing home abuse and/or neglect are very serious and should be treated accordingly. Signs and symptoms that may be misinterpreted by laypeople may lead many families to wrongly believe their loved one has been abused or neglected. Since family members are fiercely protective of their loved ones who reside in a nursing home, individuals who own, operate, or are employed by a nursing home may find themselves facing groundless claims of nursing home malpractice.

MDAFP understands the damage that can result to a facility's reputation when a plaintiff alleges that a nursing home staff member injured them, either negligently or intentionally. Our firm strives to do everything possible to protect elder care facilities from harmful, and often unfounded, claims of nursing or staff negligence and errors. When defending a claim of nursing home abuse, neglect or malpractice, our defense lawyers will examine the situation, gather the relevant evidence, and employ the proper experts to exonerate a nursing home or assisted living facility. We are committed to constructing a strong and comprehensive defense on behalf of skilled nursing facilities and their insurers.
