Tucson Elder Abuse Lawyer
Medical Malpractice & In-Home Elder Abuse
As a person grows older, they become dependent on others for care. Their children may provide this care, or they may be placed in a nursing home or assisted living center. They may also acquire in-home care so that they have the necessary support without having to leave their home. Problems can arise, however, when the staff of their nursing home or in-home care agency - or even their own family members - abuses them because of their defenselessness or ignorance.
Elder abuse comes in many forms. First of all, elderly individuals can be physically abused, which can be inflicted by physical contact or by neglect, which includes dehydration and malnutrition, falls resulting from lack of supervision, and bedsores. There is also financial abuse of the elderly, where a care center or individual charges more than is owed or tricks the elderly individual into providing their account information, then using their accounts. Verbal, emotional, and mental abuse is also common. If you or your loved one is suffering from abuse in an elderly care center, or if you suspect such abuse, contact a Tucson personal injury attorney right away.
