Sexual Elder Abuse in Los Angeles, CA
Compassionate & Caring Legal Support
There are many crimes and illegal activities that occur in the world. One of the most tragic and devastating crimes is that of sexual abuse, especially when it happens to those who can’t defend themselves. Sexually abusing an elder or dependent adult who is under nursing home care is unthinkable to most people. Sadly, this kind of abuse happens more often than you may want to believe, and it often goes on for an extended period of time. The fragile mental and physical state of many elderly patients makes them very susceptible to sexual mistreatment and assault. If it has come to your attention that your loved one has been sexually abused by nursing home staff or fellow patients, you need to take legal action as soon as possible. A Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer from our firm is on your side, and will aggressively pursue legal action against the individuals who have hurt your family. When caretakers betray the trust you gave them, they must be held accountable.
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. It is never easy to see your family member cared for by strangers, but eventually you must give your trust to these professional care providers. You expect that they will act responsibility towards your loved one, never putting them in danger or ignoring their personal needs. Your elderly loved one deserves the highest 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 may not be your main priority, financial damages may become necessary to care for the injuries your loved one has sustained. You may also need funds to pay for a more restricted and healthy living situation. Holding parties responsible for their criminal actions may help to prevent future incidents for other victims. No matter what, our elder abuse attorneys will work hard to secure justice for your loved one.
