NHC HealthCare Nursing Home Fire Litigation
On September 25, 2003 a six-alarm fire occurred at the NHC nursing home in Nashville, Tennessee. Sixteen persons died in the fire. Thirty-two lawsuits were filed and consolidated for discovery in the Third Circuit Court for Davidson County (before the Honorable Barbara Haynes). The firm represented victims and families of patients who died in this fire. David Randolph Smith and Bart Durham & Associates jointly prosecuted suits with other plaintiffs' counsel. Mr. Smith was appointed as lead counsel for the plaintiffs. Over 50 depostions were conducted in the consolidated cases.
