Medical Liability

Health Care Law: Our broad spectrum of healthcare clients include physicians, physicians’ practices, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and diagnostic laboratories. We assist clients in developing policy and procedures, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement issues, issues relating to electronic medical records, HIPAA compliance, as well as compliance with other state and federal regulations.

Medical Malpractice: Physicians, health care facilities, and insurance companies have turned to us through the years for representation in the defense of complex medical negligence claims. PLF has an outstanding trial record in both state and federal court and an extensive expert data bank, which allows our attorneys to retain experts whose credentials match the specific facts of each case.

Nursing Home and Long-Term Care Litigation: PLF has provided the highest level of representation to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, utilizing well respected experts in nursing, geriatric medicine and facility administration in the defense of our clients. We have successfully defended clients in cases involving medical errors, pressure ulcers, falls, abuse and infections.  We have lectured regularly on legal issues related to long-term care facilities.
