California Court of Appeal Limits Scope of Patient Rights Claims in Elder Abuse Cases

First few Article Sentences

In recent years, elder abuse cases have become more dangerous and costly. It is not unusual for juries to return verdicts against skilled nursing homes (“SNFs”) for millions of dollars. A new decision from the California Court of Appeal is a positive development for SNFs and their defense attorneys as it may eliminate the use of certain theories and tactics historically utilized in prosecuting elder abuse and negligence cases.
