Protecting Senior Citizens
As our loved ones grow older, we want them to receive the best care possible. We want their remaining days to be filled with peace and surrounded by those who cherish every moment. Above all, we want their final moments to be devoid of pain and suffering. But all too often, those who have been tasked with caring for our elderly do the exact opposite. They commit horrible abuses, both physically and emotionally, out of spite or simply because they can. They make the twilight years of our older citizens a complete nightmare.

But don't delay. Elder abuse thrives in isolation. Those who commit such atrocities usually do so behind closed doors, where there is little to no supervision. The longer these crimes remain in the shadows, the more damage your loved one will likely suffer. Some of the more common signs of elder abuse include:
- Physical trauma, such as unexplained bruises, burns, fractures, contusions, lacerations, or sexually transmitted diseases.
- Emotional distress, such as sudden and severe depression, anxiety, hesitation, and jittery behavior.
- Financial duress, such as missing items of value, checking accounts being emptied and excessive gifts being given to the individual's caregiver.
Whether you have encountered some of the aforementioned signs or additional red flags, we encourage you to contact our office as soon as possible. The sooner these acts are brought to light, the sooner you and your family will be able to break the cycle of abuse. Call our office today and get information from a Los Angeles personal injury attorney that you need to make an education decision.
What Can I do About Suspected Elder Abuse in Los Angeles?
As mentioned before, elder abuse is a silent crime that leaves little to no evidence. In order to effectively bring the abusers to justice and preserve your loved one's health, you will need to take the appropriate steps.
First, if you believe an elder to be in immediate and life threatening danger, call 911 right away. It is safer to have the authorities present and head off any serious problems, than to find out the unfortunate truth later on. Second, we highly recommend gathering evidence the moment you suspect wrongdoing. Photos, videos, bank receipts, and witness statements are all helpful in bolstering your case. Finally, you should contact your local Adult Protective Services (APS) to file an official report and open an investigation into your claim. At the very least, this will put the abuser on notice and make them aware that they are being watched.
