Nursing Home Litigation
Causes of action against nursing homes are a combination of statutory violations and healing arts malpractice. In order to successfully defend these lawsuits, the attorneys must not only know the law, they must also know the medicine. Cray Huber’s attorneys are among the best in both fields. The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act is replete with pitfalls that have serious consequences for the unwary.

Our attorneys have broad experience counseling nursing home clients, assisted living facilities, senior living facilities, home health care providers, and physical therapists on compliance with the state and federal regulations, as well as anti-kickback legislation and fraud and abuse statutes.
