Recently, a local TV station reported alleged elder abuse in an unlicensed nursing home here in our city. The coverage was particularly heart-wrenching. Elders allegedly slept on mattresses on the floor. The walls were reportedly covered in filth. According to one resident, there was little food and no medication. As he put it, it was a “nightmarish place.” Several residents needed immediate medical attention. Authorities removed more than a half-dozen residents and are conducting an investigation of the unlicensed facility.
Elder abuse, of course, is not always so graphic. But it is always serious. If you suspect abuse, act at once. We encourage you to report any elder abuse to the authorities, but at the same time pursue all the remedies afforded by law. California leads the nation in protection for seniors and provides expedited trials, extra damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs in elder abuse cases. While law enforcement may get you restitution for your or your loved one’s injury it is not the responsibility of such agencies to pursue all the relief to which you and your loved one may be entitled. At Evans Law Firm our elder abuse attorneys can help; we know what the California elder abuse laws provide and we know how to represent you in pursuing your claims here in San Francisco and throughout the State of California.
