The Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Action in New York State
Jason J. Platt authored the original version and edited later editions of Chapter 8, “Nursing Homes in New York: Regulations and Liability”, 2009, New York State Bar Association, Albany, NY. As this publication notes, “attorneys used to dabble in plaintiff’s personal injury work: it was not overly complex. Those days are now long gone – if they ever truly existed”. The treatise goes on to suggest that in today’s world, attorneys must master certain areas of the law and in that light, the New York State Bar Association turned to “attorneys and judges in New York State known for their skill and achievement”. As one of these attorneys, Jason was honored to contribute the chapter which, in comprehensive fashion, addresses the substantive and practical aspects of Nursing Home Litigation in New York State.
