Elder abuse often occurs within a victim’s own home or healthcare facility and is typically perpetrated by their own caregiver or trusted family member.
Abuse or neglect within assisted living facilities can take several forms such as physical abuse, financial exploitation, and sexual assault. The symptoms of abuse are regularly subtle or difficult to detect and often go unreported by victims for fear of their own safety or due to a cognitive or other impairment.
Elder abuse is something our firm takes extremely seriously. Abuse is a growing concern for California’s elder population and everyday individuals are victimized. Typically when an abuse case is reported, there are likely multiple instances of maltreatment occurring within a healthcare facility. We help our clients investigate patterns of neglect and a given facilities history of offenses to bring about justice and prevent future misconduct.
