Pursuing Compensation in Elder Neglect and Abuse Claims
Nursing homes, in-home care providers and others who are responsible for the elderly are required to act with care. When they fail to do so and cause harm, either through neglect or through direct elder abuse, they can be held responsible.
At the law firm of Patterson, Hanna & Associates, our lawyers are committed to holding these care providers responsible. We have more than 25 years of experience handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases in North Orange County. You can be certain that we can help you and your loved one get fair compensation.
Standing Up for Elderly Victims of Physical Abuse and Neglect
Much of the physical harm that happens to elders is the result of neglect including:
- Understaffing — perhaps a nursing home is understaffed and unable to properly care for all residents, and the result is bed sores.
- Improper training — perhaps an in-home care provider is not properly trained and fails to prevent the elderly person in their care from falling in the bathroom.
Even though these examples are not direct abuse, those responsible should still be held accountable for the harm done. We can help.
Standing Up for Elderly Victims of Financial Abuse
Sometimes, abuse is not physical, but financial. This abuse could be obvious. A member of a nursing home staff may take a ring or an in-home care provider may take money out of a drawer. Sometimes, the abuse involves convincing an elderly person to purchase gifts or spend money on a care-giver. No matter what form financial abuse takes, our goal is to get your loved one's money back.
