California Caregiver Abuse and Elder Neglect Lawyers
Moran Law elder abuse attorneys specialize in litigating cases involving caregiver abuse neglect in California. We are a 2014 Litigator Awards™ Winner in Nursing Home Abuse, and work closely with and volunteer for California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform (CANHR).
Families rely on caregivers to provide their elderly loved ones with professional medical and care services in skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs) and for home health services. Unfortunately, scenarios of elderly abuse or neglect at the hands of a caretaker are more common than you might think.
Evidence of caregiver abuse or neglect may include:
- Bruises, cuts or scrapes
- Rapid weight loss
- Bedsores/pressure sores
- Falling injuries
- Medication errors or inappropriate prescriptions
- Mood swings, mood change or emotional withdrawal
- Fearful behavior in the presence of the caregiver
- Unsanitary conditions
- Sudden or unexplained changes to a will, money transfers or withdrawals
Poor training, insufficient supervision and under-staffing can all lead to neglect scenarios. Family members are often the first to notice a problem, if you see something wrong you should seek help from a professional elder abuse attorney immediately.
