Information on Sexual Elder Abuse
Sexually abusing an elder or dependent adult who is under nursing home care is unthinkable to most people. Sadly, the reality is that this kind of abuse happens more often than you may want to consider, and it often goes on for an extended period of time. If it has come to your attention that your loved one has been sexually abused by either nursing home staff, or fellow patients, you need to take legal action against those responsible. A Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer from our firm is one your side, and will aggressively pursue legal action against the individuals who have hurt your family, and betrayed the trust that you put in them to care for your loved one.
When you put your loved one in nursing home care, it is usually because you are unable to give them the 24-hour attention and care they require. You expect that they will get the accepted level of care from the nursing home you have placed them in, and when this trust is breached, it is extremely devastating for all involved. While monetary compensation is the least of your motivators for seeking legal recourse, financial compensation may become necessary to care for the injuries your loved one has sustained, as well as to pay for placing them in a better and healthier situation.
