Abuse and exploitation of elderly
Abuse of an elderly family member or friend may be physical, mental, emotional, or sexual. The abuse can be by a caregiver who is a family member, an in-home paid worker, a staff person of a program such as an adult day care center or of a facility such as a nursing home, or another person. Exploitation means that a person in a position of trust knowingly, by deception and intimidation, obtains and uses or tries to obtain and use a vulnerable person’s funds, assets, or property.
Often those who injure others by their negligence, and those responsible for them, have professional insurance adjusters and representatives guiding them and helping them navigate the claims process. Their interests are to minimize what happened and deny the claim if possible. You need and have a right to also have an advocate looking out for your interests. The lawyers at Friedman, Frank & Abrahamsen have the experience, skill, compassion, and commitment to get you the compensation you deserve and hold those responsible accountable. If you or a loved one are a victim of elder abuse or exploitation, call Friedman, Frank & Abrahamsen, 850-224-HELP (4357) for a free consultation about your personal injury or wrongful death case.
