Elder and Dependent Law

Low, Ball & Lynch handles a variety of Elder and Dependent Adult cases for clients throughout Northern California. The firm offers seminars to nursing facilities to assist them in loss prevention. We are conversant with the many complex and potentially conflicting regulations governing the care of the elderly and disabled, and with the requirements of new legislation.

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities walk a tightrope between meeting staffing requirements and staff burn-out and turnover. Training on a daily basis must be documented and charting is crucial for patient health and lawsuit defense.

The Elder Law Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA) encourages plaintiff lawyers to sue on behalf of elders and preserves elements of damages after a patient’s death.  We represent our corporate and public entity clients effectively and efficiently throughout licensing claims and lawsuits, whether the matter goes to arbitration or trial.
