What Exactly Is Elder Abuse?

The phrase “elder abuse” refers to any negligent or intentional act by a caregiver or another person that results in harm or the serious risk of harm to an elderly or vulnerable adult. If a family member has put a loved one in an elderly care facility, assisted living facility or nursing home, they expect professional and personalized care. Unfortunately, cases of abuse and neglect are extremely common. If your loved one is taken advantage of, it may go on undetected and be a devastating realization when the facts are finally discovered.

Common Signs of Elder Abuse

Cases of elder abuse can be mental, financial or physical. Some of the most common signs of this type of abuse include:

  • Indications of mismanaged medical care, including unmarked or empty bottles of outdated prescriptions.
  • Caregivers who change health care or social providers often or who refuse to apply for any outside services or economic aid for the senior.
  • Unattended health issues or poor personal hygiene.
  • A complexion that is abnormally pale.
  • Open welts, bruises, cuts or wounds.
  • Sudden changes in financial documents or a will.
  • Issues sleeping or nightmares.
  • The absence of ventilation, heat, water or food.
  • Improper clothing or attire for the weather.
  • Not providing access to wheelchairs, walkers, hearing aids, eyeglasses or dentures.
  • Fear of the person providing care.
  • A sudden or significant weight loss.

Those represent just some of the indications that a senior may be a victim of elder abuse.

Who Can File an Elder Abuse Lawsuit?

An elder abuse lawsuit can be filed by the individual being abused, by a conservator or a personal representative on behalf of the estate of a deceased person. An elder abuse lawyer with our firm can assist with this filing and ensure you meet your deadlines promptly and properly.

There are several options a person can take if they suspect abuse, but all need to be handled with care to ensure the victim’s privacy is respected. We understand cases of elder abuse and how difficult and emotional the situation can be. In many cases, we can conclude an elder abuse case out of the courtroom, but we are ready and willing to litigate the situation if necessary. We want to help you achieve the most desirable outcome for your case.

It was great comfort to have Gabe and his Team of spectacular people with support and going to extra mile for my Brother and I in such a stressful time in our lives. No matter what complications that happen with our case they did an amazing job. The case settled out of court in our favor which meant the World to me vs. the pain of a trial.”

I highly recommend this law firm for any of your love ones with a wrongful death.
