Winning ADR Issues in Nursing Home Cases

Published by Virginia Trial Lawyers Association


Learn more about how Irwin v. Kindred Nursing Centers East LLC was really won directly from the attorney who defeated an arbitration clause with a rehabilitation facility. It doesn't happen very often. This seminar will provide a plaintiff’s guide to contesting arbitration agreements in Virginia nursing home contracts. Some take-aways from this seminar include:

• As defense attorneys try to compel arbitration in long term care cases, plaintiff’s attorneys must be prepared to fight back even before the case is filed;
• Learn about recent Circuit Court rulings, how to use 8.01-581.12 and combat claims that the Federal Arbitration Act applies; and
• how exactly did Buckeye Check Cashing, Inc. v. Cardegna help in a nursing home case?

Winning against arbitration clauses are rare so these victories are significant. Don't miss this opportunity to hear about the most recent one.

Due to the nature of the program, this seminar is open only to attorneys who exclusively represent injured persons. This phone seminar was recorded live on Oct. 25, 2017.

2018 Credit expires 10/31/2018.
