Nursing home litigation seminars help members help clients.

For plaintiff attorney members interested in nursing home litigation, ATLA Education presents a unique opportunity: back-to-back seminars at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis:

* October 4-5: "The Ever-Changing Defendant: Holding the Nursing Home Industry Accountable"

* October 6: "Deconstructing a Landmark Resident-on-Resident Abuse Nursing Home Case Against Summit Care Corp. (AIG as Insurer)"

The first seminar brings together leading trial lawyers and medical experts to share their insights on how to hold the nursing home industry liable for residents' injuries. This program also will address issues specific to assisted-living facilities.

In the second seminar, attendees can discover firsthand what persuaded a jury to find for the plaintiff in a landmark resident-on-resident abuse case, sending a forceful message to the nation's nursing home operators: Don't place profits over people. Join members of the trial teams as they dissect this Texas case and explain their strategy.

Register early and jointly for both programs and save $170 off the regular registration prices. For more information or to register, visit www.atla.org/education/nursinghome or www.atla.org/education/nhresident, or call (800) 622-1791 or (202) 965-3500, ext. 612.
