Dothan Elder Abuse Attorneys
Have You or a Loved One Been the Victim of Elder Abuse?
After everything they have contributed to our society, senior citizens
have earned the right to be treated with respect, have their needs fulfilled,
and not suffer physical or emotional harm from caregivers and nursing
home staff members. Unfortunately, due to understaffing and low wages
in the elder care industry, as well as frustration from caregivers, many
patients suffer serious abuse. When elder abuse occurs, victims can recover
compensation with the help of an experienced
personal injury lawyer.
Dothan, Alabama crime victim attorneys at
Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC can pursue civil lawsuits against all types of elder abusers. With more
than 130 years of collective legal experience, our firm can help you recover
full and fair compensation for your losses.
Fighting All Types of Elder Abuse
There are a variety of ways elder abuse can occur. For instance, nursing
homes and staff members neglect to provide their residents with basic
medical needs, causing serious and potentially fatal injuries. Out of
stress and low wages, caregivers can turn their frustrations into violent
outbursts that harm residents. Due to the physical and mental state of
elder patients, they allow family members, peers, and even companies handle
their finances, which can result in financial exploitation.
Our experienced legal team can fight for monetary damages which covers
the costs of medical treatment, emotional distress, as well as pain and
suffering caused by elder abuse. In some cases, victims may also recover
punitive damages. If a loved one passes away, we can help surviving family
members file a wrongful death claim.
