Is Your Loved One A Victim Of Elder Abuse Or Exploitation?

Perhaps one of the most difficult decisions that we will ever have to make is deciding how to ensure that our aging or sick parents or relatives receive the daily care they need. In many cases, loved ones require the assistance of a nursing home or other care facility. Some of these facilities are professional, caring and trustworthy. Others fall far short, allowing staff members or others to physically and financially abuse the people they are paid to care for.

At Siegal & Richardson LLP, we can help you put a stop to elder abuse and exploitation. We can also help you obtain compensation for the heartache, suffering and financial losses your family has experienced as a result of nursing home negligence. Our team of litigation attorneys has more than 45 combined years of experience. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

If you believe your loved one has been neglected, abused or exploited by nursing home staff or another fiduciary, contact us today. We advise and represent clients in San Francisco and throughout California.

A Growing Problem

Sadly, instances of elder abuse are on the rise in the United States. As baby boomers age, their adult children need to be aware of the risks associated with certain elder care facilities.

Due to financial considerations, some nursing homes cut corners, fail to train employees, hire dangerous employees, fail to monitor residents and allow other hazards that adversely affect the level of care for our seniors. In some cases, there are issues of physical abuse and neglect.

If you suspect that there is ongoing physical abuse at a facility, you may want to contact the police immediately. You should also contact us to discuss the matter. You and your loved one may be entitled to financial compensation from the offending facility or individual. We have extensive experience in these matters, and we can answer your questions, explain your options and help you obtain compensation.

Financial Exploitation Of The Elderly

Financial rip-offs are another issue that can easily affect vulnerable adults. Brokers, stock brokers, financial advisers, accountants and other fiduciaries have a legal obligation to protect elders. If a fiduciary violates that obligation, we can help you hold the responsible party accountable.

Unfortunately, in some cases, one or more of the senior's own family members have engaged in financial exploitation. We can help you address this delicate matter in a way that is appropriate for your family.
