Haight Brown & Bonesteel has a thorough understanding of the intricacies involved in defending claims against the elder care community, one of the most regulated and scrutinized industries in the United States, on both the litigation and regulatory spectrums. California’s elderly population is expected to grow twice as fast as the rest of the State by 2020. Nationally, the population over the age of 65 is expected to double within the next twenty-five years. By 2030, almost 1 in 5 Americans, an estimated 72 million people, will be 65 and older. The ability of the elder and long term care industry to preserve and predict fiscal health is critical.
