As members of the American Association for Justice, our nursing home lawyers advocate for the rights of patients, residents and American families. One of the most widespread threats to these rights are forced arbitration clauses in contracts, and particularly in nursing home admissions contracts.
We wrote about this topic a few weeks ago, here, where we outlined what pre-dispute, binding arbitration clauses are and why nursing homes include them in their contracts.
The New York Times recently published Parts I and II of a series on forced arbitration. This series details the origins and evolution of forced arbitration, how they are abused by corporations, and the catastrophic impact they have on Americans.
