At Logan Logan & Watson, L.C., we understand that quality care is essential for our seniors, both now and in the future. For this reason, our attorneys have been at the forefront of the defense of senior care providers for decades, managing hundreds of cases involving independent senior living facilities, assisted living facilities, residential care homes, post-acute care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and nursing home facilities in Kansas and Missouri. We also have extensive experience in dealing with claims brought under state and federal regulations applicable to the senior care industry and understand how to defend against attempts to generate additional claims of negligence from these statutes and regulations.
In addition, our attorneys regularly represent hospitals, practice groups, other institutional providers of health care services, individual health care professionals and their practice groups, and ancillary service providers within the health care marketplace. This recognized experience in the field of medical malpractice litigation provides our attorneys with a solid understanding of the medical and nursing issues presented in cases involving the care of geriatric patients. Our attorneys also understand that senior care and nursing home defense cases require early and thorough investigation in order to identify issues, as well as locate, safeguard and preserve information relating to the claim. For this reason, we regularly work with our clients to ensure that potential claim situations are avoided if possible, and if not, dealt with early and cost effectively.
