Has someone in your family been abused by a caregiver? We will fight for you.
Sadly, elder abuse is a common occurrence in America today. In fact, the National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that every reported incident of elder abuse corresponds to 5 or more incidents that are not reported. Don’t let your elder loved one’s abuse go unnoticed and unpunished. Instead, turn to The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker for help building a civil case against the abuser.
What Qualifies as Elder Abuse?
Elder abuse laws protect senior citizens as well as “dependent adults” who need care due to physical or mental limitations against 5 main types of abuse including:
- Physical Abuse
- Assault and battery
- Unreasonable physical restraint
- Prolonged or continual deprivation of food or water
- Sexual Abuse
- Sexual assault and battery
- Sexual harassment
- Financial Exploitation
- Emotional Abuse
- Degrading verbal harassment
- Solitary confinement
- Improper medication
- Inadequate food and water
- Requests for assistance ignored
Remember--you don’t need to be 100 percent sure abuse has taken place to consult an attorney. Let us be the judge of whether or not there is reason to take legal action.
