Ohio and Florida Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Defense Lawyers

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 80,000 people in Ohio live in nursing homes. As the United States' population ages, greater numbers of Americans will spend some portion of their lives in nursing homes or long-term care facilities. It is little wonder that nursing home, long-term care and home health care litigation is expanding rapidly in Ohio and throughout the United States. Considering these trends, lawyers who have experience in nursing home/long-term care litigation are valuable advocates and counselors.
