Physical Elder Abuse in Los Angeles
Has your loved one shown signs of being physically abused?
Elder abuse is one of the most devastating and heartbreaking incidents to consider. When circumstances require that your loved one be placed in a nursing home, it is usually because they require 24-hour care or assisted living. You expect them to be provided with the utmost care and consideration, not abuse or neglect. When abuse is perpetrated by the very individuals that you have been placing your trust in to care for your loved ones, you need to seek legal recourse. Doing so may be the only way to prevent them from continuing their actions against other vulnerable dependent adults. Contact a Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer from our firm today to discuss your case and find out what legal options are available to you.
Although no amount of money can make up for the pain and suffering your loved one endured, as well as the emotional trauma that has affected your entire family, seeking monetary compensation in civil court is a form of justice that should be pursued. The criminal case against the facility will be handled by the state. In addition to the staff of a nursing home abusing patients, if the staff is inattentive or negligent, abuse may be perpetrated by one patient to another. Whatever the circumstance were, you owe it to your loved one to take legal action.
