Defense Attorneys Representing Nursing Homes, Rehabilitation And Long-Term Care Facilities
As litigation against nursing homes, rehabilitation and long-term care facilities becomes more prevalent, FKSFPC attorneys are at the forefront of the defense.
We have substantial legal expertise in this area, including knowledge of the Public Health Law, the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), the Omnibus Reconciliation Act (OBRA) and the New York Code of Rules and Regulations (NYCRR). This knowledge allows us to successfully defend against erroneous allegations, often made by plaintiffs, of nursing home strict liability.
