Another Tort Reform Idea

Encourage your senators and representatives in Congress to vote for the Nursing Home Transparency Act, w hich will require nursing home owners to identify themselves.  For years, the nursing home industry has dodged its responsibility to nursing home patients by hiding who the owners and operators are.  Only a person or company with a license can operate a nursing home.  Often, nursing home operators create many companies to run one company, making sure that the company with the license has no assets, no employees and no insurance.  Lawyers trying to sue the responsible parties when nursing home patients are seriously injured or killed is sometimes impossible. When it is possible, a lengthy and expensive legal investigation that can take years is necessary – to try to uncover who actually runs and profits from the nursing home’s business.  I represent the family of a woman who died in a North Carolina nursing home in 2003 and, after years of work on the case,  I have just recently  succeeded in amending the lawsuit to reach the persons we believe are responsible.   Click on link to see Order amending complaint and to see proposed legislation.
