Sacramento Elder Abuse Lawyer
Protect Your Loved Ones Against Nursing Home Abuse in Sacramento
Elder neglect and abuse can happen in a variety of ways and often results
in serious physical, emotional, or psychological injury to the victim.
Thousands of elderly die each year as a result of elder abuse. The four
categories of elder abuse include:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
Physical abuse is easy to recognize, but just as easy to hide. Oftentimes,
physical damage comes not as a result of force but from the withholding
of vital resources. Emotional abuse can take the form of ridicule, humiliation,
or threats. Sexual abuse entails the use of coercion to make sexual contact.
Financial abuse can be as simple as stealing property but also includes
theft of financial assets.
If you suspect that your elderly loved one is being mistreated, contact a
Sacramento personal injury attorney today. At Ross Not, Attorney at Law, I help the wrongfully injured and
their families seek justice. Your loved one deserves to be compensated
after being unjustly subjected to another individual's harmful actions.

Signs of Elder Abuse
It is very important that you are able to notice signs of elder abuse.
The elderly population is often vulnerable to abuse and mistreatment because
of their age and their dependence. Oftentimes the perpetrator ends up
being the very person we trust to care for our loved one.
Some common signs of elder abuse include:
- Unexplained bruises, scars, or other physical injuries
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Broken bones or joints
- Large withdrawals from the elder's bank accounts
- Suspicious financial transactions
- Questionable changes in wills or estate documents

A large number of our elders aged 65 or older live in a nursing home. Around
10% of those seniors experience neglect or abuse each year. Most of it
goes completely unreported. Even worse, some of us may even be completely
oblivious to the abuse our loved ones are experiencing. It is essential
that we be proactive and look into any signs of suspicious activity or behavior.
For more than 20 years, I have been helping families expose and recover
from nursing home abuse. Because of the uniquely vulnerable position of
elderly victims and how difficult it is to attain reliable testimony,
it is crucial to secure the counsel of an experienced personal injury
attorney. I will walk this difficult road with you to ensure that both
the individual abusers
and their employer are held accountable.
