Long Term Care Liability
Walters, Levine & Lozano understands the complexity, personal and sensitive nature of allegations made against long term care facilities. We provide hands-on counsel to assisted living facilities, nursing homes and retirement centers throughout the entire state of Florida. With more than a decade of experience in this highly regulated and extensively litigated area of practice, we defend cases involving abuse and neglect, violation of resident’s rights, malnutrition, dehydration, medication administration errors, falls, development of pressure ulcers, and sexual abuse. The firm understands the plaintiff’s model of “profit over patient care” and vigorously defends our clients to establish the care provided met or exceeded the applicable standards of care. While these cases have the potential to be quite expensive, our attorneys immediately develop a costeffective solution ensuring our client’s objective is met through aggressive defense strategies.
Our long term care defense attorneys routinely provide in-service training to facility staff in an effort to teach proper documentation, how to mitigate future claims and damages, and to ensure the facilities policies and operations are compliant with state and federal regulations.
