Types of Cases We Handle
Los Angeles Elder Abuse Attorneys
People who are older, frail, and vulnerable cannot help themselves and depend on others to help them meet their basic needs. As families, we become reliant on others to assist our parents and grandparents as they age, hiring caregivers and skilled medical assistants to help. When these trusted people take advantage of the people we love, Rice & Bloomfield can help ensure that justice is done.
With our population aging and more elders becoming dependent on others for care, it is an unfortunate reality that hundreds of thousands of older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited every year. Whether it is due to the negligence of a care facility, the wrongful actions of support staff, or abuse from an individual hired for the everyday care of your elder family member, the Law Offices of Rice & Bloomfield can help you hold wrongful parties accountable for the harm they have caused.
Our attorneys have recovered millions on behalf of wronged families in the San Fernando Valley and the Greater Los Angeles Area. Call (818) 999-2220 to learn how we can help you as well.
What Is Elder Abuse?
Elder abuse is a legal term which describes one or more of the following:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse, including non-consensual sexual contact of any kind
- Emotional or psychological mental anguish such as humiliation, intimidation, or threats
- Financial or material exploitation, including taking and using resources of an older person without his/her consent
- Caretaker neglecting to provide goods or services necessary to avoid physical harm, mental anguish, or mental illness (this includes abandonment and denial of food or health related services)
Seek Compensation for Elder Abuse and Negligence
While no amount of compensation can repay you for the physical and mental damage done, it can help your loved one and your family account for expenses related to the abuse. Potential damages include medical care; reparations for stolen property; pain and suffering; and, in the case of wrongful death, funeral and final expenses. Punitive compensation, or money award to victims to punish the wrongful part, may also serve to prevent similar instances from happening to other families in the future. Seeking compensation can thus serve the important function of holding negligent parties accountable for their actions, protecting others from facing the same abuse and neglect that your loved one endured.
