At Shuman, McCuskey & Slicer, PLLC, our team of skilled attorneys and knowledgeable staff provide capable and effective nursing home defense representation in general negligence and long-term care litigation cases to both local and national clients facing potential litigation in the courtrooms of West Virginia and Virginia.

Our extensive medical background in these types of cases has proven very beneficial in providing effective nursing home defense services and in managing long-term care litigation. Firm member Elizabeth Lawton brings special expertise to this practice area based upon her experience as both a Nurse for more than 20 years and as a former Commissioner for the West Virginia Bureau for Medical Service (Medicaid). In addition, we maintain medical consultants on staff to assist our lawyers in researching the complex medical issues and highly technical aspects of the law that apply to nursing homes and similar health care providers.

In addition to handling medical malpractice and general medical negligence cases involving nursing homes, personal care homes, assisted living facilities, residential board and care homes, and in-home care, our nursing home defense attorneys also handle complex long-term care litigation. In every matter, we take pride in offering prompt, clear, and completely candid communication throughout the legal process, and in providing the knowledge and skills essential to both the thorough preparation and the successful defense of these specialized cases.
