Los Angeles Nursing Home Defense

Los Angeles Nursing Home Defense Lawyer


We Seek to help the people and organizations that help the elderly and disabled in Los Angeles. Nursing homes perform vital services for the families of Southern California. Elderly men and women who can no longer care for themselves receive around-the-clock medical attention and assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). Facility administrators, staff, nurses and doctors work hard to protect these vulnerable individuals from injuries and illnesses. But when their health begins to decline or they suffer an accident, families can blame and bring a lawsuit against the healthcare providers and nursing home

Tien Law Firm can assist with medical malpractice defense cases. Our medical malpractice defense attorney draws upon a decade of litigation experience to develop a strategy that can protect your license and your financial interests from unjust legal allegations.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Claims

Not all injuries or worsening health conditions are the result of negligence. To prove a claim, the patient must prove that the facility or employees breached a duty of care, causation, and damages. For example, a patient’s family may accuse the nursing home and its doctors, nurses and staff of such abusive and neglectful conduct as the following:

  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation, undue influence, and theft
  • Infection
  • Failure to provide adequate medical care
  • Untreated medical condition
  • Bedsores
  • Falls
  • Failure to properly monitor
  • Unsterile conditions
  • Physical attack on the patient
  • Confinement or restrictions to access of a patient
  • Overmedication or improper drug administration
  • Medical mistakes

However, a nursing care provider who acts reasonably and adheres to the standard of care should not be held liable for these allegations.

Defenses to Nursing Home Negligence Claims

Actions that constitute medical malpractice are based on what a similarly situated healthcare provider would reasonably have done under the given facts. A plaintiff must, therefore, show that you deviated from this level of care. Additionally, you may assert an affirmative defense that somebody else, including the patient or the patient’s family, was responsible for the injuries or illness. After meticulously investigating your case, a Raleigh nursing home defense lawyer can determine which of the following common malpractice defenses to employ, including but not limited to:

  • That a family member caused the patient’s injury
  • That a third party was responsible for harm to the patient
  • That the patient’s condition was the natural progression of age
  • That even with regular and appropriate supervision, staff was unable to prevent the injury
  • That doctors responded reasonably to an emergency situation or medical condition
  • That the nursing home facility followed California statutes
