Fighting For Elderly Victims Of Sexual Abuse
When it becomes necessary to place an elderly person in a nursing home or elder care facility, there is often some guilt involved. That guilt can be magnified tenfold if some sort of physical or sexual abuse is discovered.
At Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, we have been able to help many families with personal injury litigation for elder abuse of their aged parent or relative. One of our law firm partners focused on nursing home cases during law school and spent time reviewing them. He later defended them and is well-aware of the claims and counterclaims a nursing home facility can, and will, make. Our law firm currently has immediate access to qualified medical personnel for review of our cases.
It is hard enough to place someone in a nursing home. It is even more difficult when they are mistreated. We can help.
We Handle All Types Of Cases In New York City And The Boroughs
It is rare when the chosen nursing home or elder care facility is conveniently located next to other family members. Quite often we see the adult children living in Manhattan and their elderly parent in a nursing home in Queens, the Bronx or Brooklyn. Our law firm offers the legal command needed to pursue compensation for any personal injuries received by the nursing home resident, as well as compensation for pain and suffering.
Please contact our law firm if you have become aware of any of the following situations:
- Sexual abuse or sexual assault, including rape
- Physical abuse, including excessive restraints, forced feeding, bruising or cutting
- Emotional abuse, including verbal assault
- Lack of physical attention such as failure to restrain, missed meals or improper hygiene
