Get Justice For Your Elderly Loved One
Many elderly people are not able to care for themselves or speak up for themselves. This makes them vulnerable to abuse and neglect, often at the hands of those who are entrusted with their well-being.
Do you believe your aged parent was injured by the negligence or intentional acts of caregivers? Are you concerned that someone is taking financial advantage of your elderly family member? The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser can take prompt action to stop elder abuse and hold nursing homes or other caretakers accountable under the law.
Our Palm Springs law firm serves the Coachella Valley, the High Desert and communities of Riverside and San Bernardino counties. We offer a free consultation to discuss your concerns.
Handling All Types Of Nursing Home Injury And Abuse
Our lawyers have represented senior citizens who suffered injury in a nursing home, assisted living facility or in a private, in-home care setting. We can investigate suspicious injuries or a sudden decline in health to determine if your loved one was abused or neglected. Examples of nursing home injury or abuse include:
- Bedsores from staff neglect
- Falls from a bed or wheelchair
- Falls while walking unattended
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Prescription medication errors
- Untreated medical conditions
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
We examine the medical records, employee backgrounds, prior complaints against care providers and other evidence to show that they failed to provide adequate medical care, patient supervision, staffing levels or security measures. If there is evidence of abuse or indifference, our firm will pursue compensation for medical intervention, lasting injury, and your loved one’s pain and suffering.
Skilled Legal Representation For Elder Abuse
Attorney Michael Kaiser also pursues legal remedy for elder financial abuse. Sometimes rest home workers or private nurses steal money or property from patients. Sometimes an elderly person is sold a bogus or unneeded service or product. Sometimes adult children convince the elderly parent to give them access to bank accounts or to sign over the house to them, then use the money for their own purposes or fail to take care of Mom or Dad.
We will take action to recover lost property and if necessary a court injunction to keep the predatory person away. California law allows for recovery of attorney fees in some cases to make it feasible for the victim or concerned family members to pursue legal action.
