Defending Nursing Homes

Representing nurses is different from representing doctors. Doctors implement orders and nurses follow them, so their mindset is different. Doctors are more likely to have their own insurance policies, and because some require the doctor''s consent to settle, medical malpractice cases are more likely to go to trial. Nurses on the other hand are less likely to be familiar with, and more apprehensive about, being the subject of litigation since they are but one employee among many on the same nursing home policy.
