Handling your family's elder abuse case with care

Our firm handles elder abuse claims related to abuse and neglect in nursing home facilities, long-term care facilities and in residential settings. Signs of abuse may be hard to spot in some elderly people. Often, confusion or an inability to explain what they are feeling can make this hard for elderly people.

  • Unexplained bruises and/or cuts
  • Malnutrition
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Personality changes
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Bedsores

Elder abuse and financial exploitation

Sadly, physical and financial abuse of the elderly are often connected. A person may be exploiting the elderly person financially as well as withholding food or not providing adequate care. A person may use his or her power to threaten the elderly person into signing over a house, giving them money and other acts of exploitation. Our firm takes these cases very seriously, and we are here to help your family. Contact us today to arrange your consultation with an experienced lawyer.
