ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

Issaquah Law Group - Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

Nursing Homes Must Give60 Days Notice of Closure

The problem with being a relatively new attorney is that, quite frankly, I don't know everything yet. Eventually you run into most types of cases and most situations, but this hasn't come up. Nursing Homes, when they're closing, used to have to give 30 days notice that they were shutting the doors. You may think this would be uncommon, but with a slew of mergers and acquisitions in the Nursing Home Market (largely by Real Estate Investment Trusts), there have been a lot of closures over the past four years of unprofitable facilities.

*Pause*

Yes, I did just say unprofitable. I know that sounds harsh, and it is harsh. Remember, unless its a not-for-profit Nursing Home, their end game is to make money. A person is not a person, but a dollar sign. Keep this in mind.

*Unpause*

So when these facilities closed, they only had to give you 30 days notice that you need to pack up and find a new place. This can be very traumatizing for someone in an acute setting, where they're being provided extensive care. The new rule provides for 60 days, which lessens that burden a little.

 

Nursing Homes Must Give60 Days Notice of Closure: "     WASHINGTON (CN) - If a nursing home that provides Medicare and Medicaid services will be closing, the administrator must give residents at least 60 days written notice, instead of the former 30 days, and the notice must include a state approved plan for relocating the residents."
