Long Term Care & Nursing Home Litigation

Overview

Starnes Davis Florie is one of the region's most experienced firms representing long term care and nursing home facilities, throughout Alabama and other states. Attorneys in this practice group take pride in providing their clients with an early assessment of each case to facilitate a considered judgment as to the potential risk and cost associated with litigation.

The firm's extensive trial experience has proven beneficial to its nursing home and long term care clients in both aggressively defending cases and negotiating favorable resolutions prior to trial. Settlement values are significantly affected by the opposition's knowledge that the firm is ready and able to try the case. Having handled the first case in which the Alabama Supreme Court upheld an arbitration agreement in a malpractice case against a nursing home, Starnes Davis Florie is actively involved in arbitrating nursing home cases and providing other general consultation to clients about arbitration. Furthermore, nursing home and long term care clients who are represented in labor and employment matters by the firm's Labor and Employment practice group benefit from the synergy between two discrete practice groups.

Many of Starnes Davis Florie's most experienced trial attorneys are involved in the Long Term Care & Nursing Home Litigation practice group. The group also includes the former director of nursing for a long term care facility and a licensed assisted living administrator who work exclusively on these cases through all phases of litigation. This includes pre-litigation record reviews, resulting in an organized and comprehensive set of records. Clients understand the importance of experience and knowledge of issues specific to long term care for successful representation. Starnes Davis Florie can provide that skill and knowledge.
