Pembroke Pines Elder Abuse
Elder abuse in Pembroke Pines and South Florida leaves scars that can rob a senior of their final years and of their dignity. Elder abuse can involve physical abuse, rape, financial fraud, neglect, medical abuse, and emotional abuse. It can cause depression, financial distress, isolation, and serious or even life-threatening physical injury. There is no reason for abuse and neglect to occur, but abusers take advantage of their positions of power to target those who are most vulnerable.
If you want to hold liable parties accountable for the abuse inflicted on you or your family members, contact Flaxman Law Group. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group work tirelessly to build strong cases on behalf of our clients.

If you have been injured, our legal team would be pleased to offer you a free consultation so that you can get a legal assessment of your situation before you make any decisions about legal claims.Seeking Justice on Behalf of Seniors
Senior citizens are among the most vulnerable in our society and deserve the care and respect that their years warrant. Unfortunately, some care facilities and caregivers are negligent in providing adequate care. Some are even abusive.
If a loved one has been the victim of abuse or neglect, you will of course want justice. Authorities may be able to pursue criminal charges against perpetrators of physical abuse, financial fraud, or sexual abuse. In addition, if the abuse took place at a nursing home or care facility in Pembroke Pines or Florida, you may be able to report the facility to a government agency to have the facility punished under state laws.
However, even with these acts of justice in place, you may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can help you to seek a civil case against the perpetrators of the abuse and other liable parties. This can help you get justice, even if government agencies fail to act or even if authorities are unable to secure justice in your case. A personal injury attorney can pursue a legal claim that allows you to seek compensation for your loved one’s injuries. With this money in hand, you can seek quality caregiving facilities as well as medical care and counseling for your loved one so that they can make the fullest recovery possible after their abuse.Speak to a Personal Injury Attorney Today
