Long Term Care Litigation
Harman Claytor’s Long Term Care Litigation Team has offices in both Virginia and the Washington, DC area representing nursing homes, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and home health providers in a variety of claims. We have defended personal injury and wrongful death claims involving issues of wound care, elopement, medication errors, sexual abuse, assault, falls, and use of restraints and mechanical lifts. The Long Term Care team’s trial experience includes defending a nursing home in a negligence action stemming from a fall from a wheelchair, a fall from a mechanical lift and a home care provider in claims of vicarious liability, negligent hiring and retention in connection with a sexual assault.
The Long Term Care team understands the importance of thorough chart review pre-suit to identify issues and key witnesses. The partners, associates and paralegals work together in interviewing staff, gathering pertinent pre and post incident medical records and retaining highly qualified experts in the fields of wound care, internal medicine, geriatric and palliative care.
Our team also represents nursing homes and other long term care providers under investigation for Medicare and Medicaid fraud.
