Long Term Care providers have faced a siege from well financed plaintiff law firms who are engaged in the pursuit of “elder abuse” litigation which unfairly drains financial resources needed to provide care to the elderly. Legislation biased in favor of aggressive plaintiff strategies has unintentionally created a windfall for the plaintiff attorney and promoted litigation which unrealistically demands perfection from an industry that courageously services a vulnerable community. More recently, plaintiffs have creatively broadened their claims into class actions.
