Pompano Beach Elder Abuse
Elder abuse in Pompano Beach and South Florida takes many forms. Some elderly residents die of injuries or are seriously injured as a result of physical assault or negligence in nursing home or care facilities. In some cases, seniors lose investments or real estate because they are improperly influenced or pressured to sign over assets or change their wills. Abuse of power of attorney is also a common concern and occurs when seniors are pressured to give a caregiver additional powers – powers which can be abused through the wrongful conduct of a trustee or conservator. These and other instances of abuse are terrible betrayals of trust that can leave permanent emotional and physical effects.

Laws exist to protect seniors who are affected by abuse and neglect. Victims of elder abuse may have the right to seek compensation to pay for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, attorney’s fees, and other damages. Taking this form of compensation is not only a senior’s right, but can be an important way to get on the road to recovery by ensuring that an elderly loved one has the financial resources to pay for the quality care and the assistance they need to get back on track. If you suspect that a loved one has been injured through nursing home abuse and neglect in Pompano Beach or their community, seek legal redress to protect them.How Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help
