Practice/Industry Group Overview

As the largest long-standing litigation firm in California primarily dedicated to the defense of health care providers, Bonne Bridges has the experience and resources to effectively and efficiently defend any health care provider against any alleged violation of the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA) and the various additional causes of action that accompany those claims.

The health care industry is currently under siege from an alarming increase in the number of Elder Abuse claims that are being pursued against long-term care facilities, acute care facilities and individual health care practitioners. This crisis is particularly severe for skilled nursing facilities and residential care facilities dedicated to providing care and treatment to elder and dependent care patients.
