Long Term Care

SWR attorneys have successfully represented long-term care providers in personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice and regulatory matters. Serving as counsel for some of the largest providers of long-term care and skilled nursing in the Midwest, our attorneys recognize the unique challenges often presented in defending cases involving the care and treatment provided to a family’s loved ones. We have litigated and defended claims arising from alleged improper care, falls, decubitus ulcers, medication administration and alleged abuse.

We are equipped to assist our long-term care provider clients with all aspects of regulatory and license compliance needs in both Kansas and Missouri, having assisted clients in both states with licensing and change of ownership transactions. Additionally, we have successfully represented our long-term care provider clients before state administrators regarding enforcement of Medicaid regulations, payment of outstanding balances and eviction of residents when necessary.

We have gained significant expertise and stay abreast of the ever growing and changing regulations governing long-term care facilities and the professionals involved in providing care. This expertise allows our attorneys to quickly identify issues, determine when and what experts are needed and identify which cases should be resolved at an early juncture and which matters to aggressively defend. We work closely with our clients and their staff to develop an effective and cohesive plan for representing our clients’ interest and achieving a successful result.
