Defending Adult Care Facilities

Adult care facilities, or ACFs, are closely monitored by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). While providing care for those individuals who need help with daily tasks due to cognitive or physical disabilities is the primary goal of an ACF, these facilities are all too often accused of negligence. Usually these lawsuits come from individuals who are related to someone in the care of an ACF. These plaintiffs usually have very little medical knowledge and their claims can be baseless.

Even if a claim is baseless, our attorneys at O'Connor First fully understand the negative impact it can have on your operations. Call our Albany lawyers at 877-886-4029 to learn more about your defense options today. You can also schedule a consultation by contacting us online.
