Professional Liability/Claim Prevention

Much like health care in general, today’s long-term care landscape is changing fast. For several decades, our attorneys have built wide-ranging expertise in this area of the law, along with a strong reputation with clients, judges, and opposing counsel — relationships that can be valuable in any case.

At Bassford Remele, we have considerable experience serving the needs of long-term care providers like nursing homes, assisted living facilities, nurses, and community-based providers. We have represented our clients in a variety of long-term care related matters including both investigations and claims involving injury, death, sexual abuse, and neglect.
