Defending Nursing Homes

Defending Nursing Homes

Accidents and injuries occur in nursing homes every day, even when the facility and its staff provide care which meets or exceeds the standard of care. When defending against claims of nursing home negligence, it is important to retain a law firm that knows the nursing home negligence insurance industry and knows how to obtain results.

At O'Connor First, we provide knowledgeable counsel and strong advocacy for insurance companies, nursing homes, adult care facilities and assisted living residences throughout New York and Vermont. We have a proven track record of success in nursing home, adult care facility and assisted living residence defense cases.

Nursing Home Lawsuits

An injury as the result of falling down or pressure ulcer can arise through no fault of anyone on the nursing home staff or administration. Nonetheless, these injures and others are the subject of costly lawsuits against nursing homes, adult care facilities, assisted living residences and other long-term care institutions across New York.

We understand the importance of resolving issues quickly, getting cases dismissed early whenever possible, and providing risk management advice designed to prevent lawsuits in the first place. Our primary goals are to save our clients the time and expense of litigation and to help them avoid unnecessary risk and liability.

Our attorneys represent clients in state and federal courtrooms throughout the region, handling litigation involving nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult homes and other institutions. We give every client personal, attentive service. We are dedicated to securing the best possible results in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
