Elder Abuse

Our senior citizens are frequently our most defenseless. Unfortunately, many elders fall prey to those whom they trust the most – family, caregivers, or financial advisers. And sadly, when assigned to the care of a skilled care facility or nursing home, many become the victims of fraud, neglect, abuse, or even wrongful death. State statutes protect our dependent and elder citizens with remedies for those who have been mistreated.

The Medical Malpractice Group believes that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity, especially those among us who cannot defend themselves. Our firm provides assertive elder law representation for elders who may suffer abuse or neglect from nursing homes, families, and others who would take advantage of this vulnerable segment of our population. We are active in the struggle to safeguard seniors and dependent adults from exploitation and mistreatment.
