Defending Long-Term Care Facilities In Northern And Central California

Last updated on December 11, 2023

The elder population has grown dramatically. Elders are among the most vulnerable members of our society and are particularly susceptible to mistreatment. Societal recognition of the problem of elder neglect and abuse has led to increased statutory provisions designed to protect our elderly population. However, these provisions have dramatically increased the number of lawsuits filed against long-term care facilities in California and have resulted in widespread negative publicity against long-term care facilities and caregivers.

Low McKinley & Salenko, LLP, has successfully tried long-term care cases to verdict and has consistently achieved favorable results for the firm’s long-term care clients throughout Northern California. In addition to our robust insurance defense practice, our attorneys have more than 100 years of experience defending long-term care facilities against claims of elder abuse and neglect.

We Prepare Aggressive Defense Strategies

Our attorneys have prepared numerous successful dispositive motions in cases involving allegations of elder abuse/neglect. We work extensively with medical and nursing consultants to develop effective trial strategies and to prepare for cross-examination of opposing experts. We are committed to aggressively defending against claims of elder abuse and neglect, and have demonstrated our unique qualifications in evaluating and managing these claims.

Competently Handling Sensitive And Emotional Cases

In evaluating hundreds of such claims, we have worked closely with management representatives to investigate and evaluate potential liability and exposure. This process necessarily involves meeting with numerous employees and caregivers to identify and prepare a strong defense and further operational objectives. We understand the disruptive effect that inflammatory and often unfounded allegations have on employee morale, and we are committed to developing the strongest defense possible under the particular circumstances.
