Long-term Care Litigation

Long Term Care is becoming increasingly more popular with plaintiff attorneys, where unlike medical malpractice claims, it permits the recovery of punitive damages and attorney fees in many jurisdictions, including Illinois. Given the aggressive nature of plaintiff attorneys in these types of cases, Barker, Castro & Steinback believes that a proactive approach to the defense is critical to obtaining exceptional results. Our lawyers are up to date on all federal and state regulations that often govern and direct much of the litigation. In addition to long-term care facilities, our attorneys defend independent and assisted living facilities around the country.
