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.
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.

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.
