Nursing Home and Assisted Living Care Litigation
As the “baby boomer” generation enters retirement age and the cost of long term and skilled nursing care continue to increase, attention to the quality of care afforded to our seniors will continue to intensify.
With 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day for the next 19 years, America’s 65 and older population is projected to double in number—to 98,000,000—by the year 2060; increasing that segment of the population from 15% today to 24%.
This projected influx of patients into a system with is currently overpopulated, understaffed, and financially stressed provides a scenario for a continued escalation of lawsuits brought by patients and their families.
