As with any profession, experience in certain legal cases ultimately breeds the best results. That is why all those who may work on nursing home neglect cases in the future should take advantage of the opportunity to learn the ins and out of these matter from those who have worked on these cases for decades. Fortunately, attorneys have just that opportunity thanks to a new seminar being organized by the American Association for Justice (AAJ). The meeting is entitled “Litigating Nursing Home Cases Seminar: From Case Selection to Trial,” and is being presented in conjunction with the AAJ’s Nursing Home Litigation Group. It is open to AAJ Plaintiff Members and AAJ Paralegal Affiliates.
As the name implies, the seminar will cover everything from the intake process to identify the cases with the best chance of success all the way to the ultimate trial. Considering its wide-ranging scope and the critical importance (and prevalence) of these cases, this seminar is something that many local attorneys and firms should consider.
Promotional materials for the event explain that “Program highlights include sessions on building a corporate case by following the money trail, proving understaffing at the nursing home, and selection and use of experts.”
You can learn more about the seminar and sign up at the AAJ website on the project: HERE.
The Seminar is May 9th -10th at the Westin Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts. Participation comes with 12.25 hours of CLE credits applicable toward AAJ’s professional recognition programs. Reference materials will be provided, along with complimentary coffee, breakfast, and a networking reception. Special room rates have been secured by the AAJ for your stay. And if you are looking for additional Boston entertainment while in the area, the Red Sox have two homes scheduled at Fenway Park!
Timely Legal Issue
Anyone following demographic trends understands that the population in America is aging at a steady clip. The portion of the community in their elderly years is rising more than any other group. Because of this, there will no doubt be an explosion of cases involving problems with long-term care. This offers a critical opportunity for plaintiff’s attorneys to truly step into the fray of an area in dire need of proper safeguards for vulnerable seniors.
No matter if you’ve never taken one of these cases before or are a seasoned veteran we hope that you consider attending this seminar to discuss these issues with colleagues and re-energize for future battles.
