Our lawyers handle nursing home-related cases throughout Louisiana’s trial and appellate courts, and before the state’s administrative agencies in licensing and civil liability claims. For years, we have defended skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, retirement facilities, long-term care institution, and rehabilitation centers and their insurers. Because of our experience and technical depth, we have a network of respected medical experts whom we manage and deploy against claims of negligent treatment of patients. In addition, one of our trial lawyers is also a Registered Nurse who is Board Certified in Health Care Compliance. Our approach is to use a thorough, early investigation to develop an exit strategy with the goal of a favorable resolution at the best opportunity in the life cycle of the claim.
