Elder Abuse

Elder abuse and nursing home abuse cases are becoming more prevalent in today’s society as elderly people are living longer and the baby boomers reach their golden years.  Our attorneys have successfully represented the elderly in both financial elder abuse and nursing home abuse cases. 

Nursing Home Injuries

Nursing home injuries are becoming more and more common.  In some cases the reason is because of the resident's age and condition.  But in most cases nursing home injuries are the predictable result of business decisions made by for‑profit corporations that make hundreds of millions of dollars each year.  These decisions place the "shareholder" ahead of the people they are supposed to be caring for, which frequently result in nursing home injuries.  These injuries often occur due to simple neglect, abuse, or understaffed facilities and poorly trained employees. 

Types of nursing home injuries may include:

  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Weight Loss
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Poor physical and dental hygiene
  • Burns
  • Pneumonia
  • Mental, verbal abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Choking
  • Bruising
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Slip and fall
  • Wandering
  • Elopement

Our attorneys are committed to fighting for the rights of the elderly and ensuring that your loved ones are treated properly and with dignity at nursing homes.  If you suspect that someone you love has been the victim of less than adequate care at their nursing home or assisted living facility, contact attorney Joel R. Bryant, Esq. today for a free consultation.  We take our nursing home elder abuse cases on a contingency basis meaning you pay no attorneys’ fees unless we win your case. 

Financial Abuse

We also handle various types of financial elder abuse.  Sadly, in most financial abuse cases, the abuser is someone the elderly person or their family trusted.  They may be a caretaker, family member, friend, attorney, stockbroker, or any other person who gains access to the elder’s assets, often through a trusted relationship.  All of these forms of abuses can be stopped by taking prompt legal action. 

We handle all types of serious financial elder abuse including:

  • Loss of Real Estate
  • Loss of Stocks/Investments
  • Intentionally Bad Investment Advice by Financial Professional
  • Mortgage Loan Fraud
  • Improper Will/Trust Amendments

While it is important to act quickly on any type of case you may have, the need to do so in financial elder abuse cases is heightened.  This is due to the fact that the abuser may be actively spending the money or transferring assets of the elder.  That is why it is imperative to get immediate attention and contact us as early as possible.  We offer a no-charge telephone consultation and accept financial abuse cases either on a contingency or hourly basis, depending on the situation.  If you or a loved one has been a victim of financial elder abuse, contact attorney Joel R. Bryant, Esq. today.
