Hollywood Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse often leaves no bruises or wounds, but can be just as devastating as other types of abuse. Emotional abuse in Hollywood can involve belittling someone, calling them names, and otherwise acting in an emotionally manipulative manner to make them feel worthless and devalued.

If you have been the victim of emotional abuse or have a relative in care who is the victim of emotional abuse, Florida law does make provisions for seeking compensation in these cases. You may be able to seek compensation from the assisted living facility or the facility where the emotional abuse took place, and you may be able to pursue the abuser in these cases in order to get compensation.

What Is Emotional Abuse In Hollywood?

Many people are confused about emotional abuse. It can involve many things, including:

  • Belittling someone
  • Making fun of someone or taunting them
  • Trying to control someone’s actions or perceptions
  • Jealous behaviors or dominant and aggressive behaviors
  • Telling someone that they are worthless

Emotional abuse can be perpetrated by caregivers, family, employers, and staff at elder care facilities and assisted-living facilities. Emotional abuse can take place alone, but it also often accompanies financial abuse, physical abuse, or sexual abuse, as abusers try to belittle their victims so that they feel they cannot speak up for themselves.

Pursuing Emotional Abuse Cases in Hollywood

Unfortunately, pursuing emotional abuse cases is often difficult. Victims may be too embarrassed or ashamed to step forward, and these types of abuse often leave few clues. It often comes down to a case of the abuser's word against the victim’s. However, justice can prevail. There are many things that a personal injury attorney in Hollywood can do in order to prove abuse:

  • Speak with former victims of the abuser
  • Get testimony from witnesses
  • Get testimony from the victim

Speaking with a personal injury attorney in cases of emotional abuse is very important. An attorney can investigate the situation in the facility, can help you understand your rights, and can help you pursue a claim if that is what you decide to do. Pursuing a legal claim can help you get the finances you need to move your elderly loved one into a safer and more caring environment.
