Ohio and Florida Long-Term Care Litigation Attorneys

Ohio Assisted Living Defense Attorneys

Increasing numbers of Americans are turning to long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities and nursing homes to meet their needs. As more people live in these facilities for longer periods of time, it is almost inevitable that greater numbers of people will claim injury due to negligence. A lawsuit can trigger exposure to massive potential liability. In addition, accusations of negligence or misconduct can bring on negative publicity and damage to a long-term care facility's reputation. It is imperative to have experienced, knowledgeable legal counsel to defend a long-term care facility against these allegations.

The lawyers of Bonezzi Switzer Polito & Hupp Co. L.P.A. defend long-term acute care (LTAC) facilities, assisted living facilities, long-term care facilities, and group homes against claims of negligence or wrongful action. Our Cleveland law firm has few rivals in the defense against malpractice and negligence claims throughout Ohio. We will take every step within the law to mitigate the negative impact of a lawsuit.

When patients allege acts of negligence against a long-term care facility, the resulting litigation will usually involve gathering the testimony of many current and former staff and employees before trial. This is particularly the case when the plaintiff alleges a pattern of negligence by the facility. We will help prepare employees and staff for pretrial depositions to ensure that these depositions go as smoothly as possible. In the event your case goes to trial, you can have confidence in our firm's ability to present your claims in the most favorable possible manner.
