Overview

Long-Term Care litigation is one of the fastest growing areas of litigation. Reminger's Long-Term Care Liability defense group is an innovator in the complex arena of long-term care law.

We boast a team of seasoned litigators who understand the actions that nursing homes should take in order to minimize potential litigation. Our inherent knowledge of the nursing home industry is palpable, as evidenced by the sheer number of nursing home cases that we handle throughout the region.

We have extensive experience defending cases involving falls, pressure sores, dehydration, and elopement, as well as the defense of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Resident’s Rights claims that form the basis of most long-term care litigation. Our group includes a former nursing home administrator, which provides our clients with unique and cutting edge defenses in this demanding area of litigation.

Our established, regional long-term care litigation practice group offers defense strategies and trial experience that sets us apart from other defense firms. Our relationships with some of the most premier and prestigious medical institutions provide us access to the most respected and credible expert witnesses across the country in the field of nursing home standards of care and geriatric medicine.
