As our population ages, more individuals are entering extended care facilities. It is estimated that by 2025, one in 10 individuals will be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. This aging and ill population is at increased risk for injury despite appropriate care.
The members of the Medical Liability Group are experienced in resolving issues unique to this environment. Extended care facility operators trust Plunkett Cooney to aggressively defend their interests when they are targeted by litigation arising from resident care claims, including elopements, use of restraints, pharmaceutical dispensing issues, alleged slip and falls, failure to report suspected abuse and pressure sore cases, among many others.
