We Put People Before Profits

Nursing homes, rehabilitation hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities are typically owned by national chains, who are usually self-insured, meaning that they will pay out of their own "pocket." They keep on retainer large law firms in Las Vegas who specialize in defending these cases. Recently, many of these facilities have started playing a 'shell game' where each facility is owned by a set of small "shell corporations" who have only limited assets, and there can be a game of "hide and seek" to collect on legitimate claims. At Law Offices of Steven Burris, our attorneys have handled scores of such cases, with successful results. Reach out to our firm today for the dedicated, highly effective counsel you deserve.
