Lewis Johs has extensive nursing home liability defense experience and we understand the special challenges involved in this expanding field of litigation. Faced with a hostile regulatory environment, our clients can be confident that our attorneys will vigorously defend their interests in all venues. Because these matters often present as a hybrid between general negligence and medical malpractice, Lewis Johs attorneys are uniquely suited to provide an early and accurate assessment of exposure and advance an aggressive litigation strategy tailored to each particular case.
We represent clients providing a full range of Aging Services including skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, assisted living facilities and home health care agencies in matters arising out of falls, supervision, infection control, pressure ulcers and alleged abuse. Our lawyers have a proven track record of success in obtaining dismissal of the complex matters via motion and verdict. Yet, if indicated and necessary, Lewis Johs attorneys are prepared to deliver the best possible resolution through direct negotiation, mediation or arbitration. Our attorneys stand at the forefront of litigators in this field and regularly conduct lectures to both our peers and clients on emerging trends and practical risk management techniques.
