Practice/Industry Group Overview
The Motley Rice Medical practice group represents individuals harmed by drugs, defective medical devices, nursing home abuse or neglect, or medical malpractice. Our attorneys are positioned to take on medical industry giants and follow the trail of inadequate medical care, corporate wrongdoing, or a hasty marketing push for a medical drug or product. As the business and science behind medical industries grow increasingly complex, we strongly advocate for those suffering from a failure to provide sufficient medical care, research and product development.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Lawsuits
Nearly two million Americans currently live in nursing homes, and the increase in abuse, neglect and malpractice against the elderly has become a national concern. Abuse and neglect of our most defenseless population can take many forms, and the federal and state regulations that exist to govern the rights of nursing home and assisted living residents sometimes fail. Motley Rice's lawyers have experience litigating nursing home lawsuits and seek to protect the rights of residents while providing victims of negligence with the compensation and care to which they are entitled.
