What Happens to a Doctor or
Nursing Home When Sued?
Oftentimes a client will ask, “What happens to the doctor/ nursing home if they are sued?” Some clients are concerned that while the treatment they received was poor, they do not want to put a doctor or nursing home out of business. There are a variety of considerations that may arise in the event of a successful lawsuit against a Virginia doctor or nursing home. From a legal perspective, however, virtually nothing will happen to the defendant doctor.
