California enacted the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA) to help protect those over the age of 65, as well as dependent adults, from financial, mental, or physical abuse. PARRIS handles all elder abuse cases on a no win no fee basis, so you’ll pay no fees until we win you or your loved ones compensation for neglect or abuse.
The elderly, or those over the age of 65, as well as dependent adults, are vulnerable to elder abuse and neglect due to cognitive and physical impairments associated with old age or dependency.
Oftentimes, cases of elder abuse are not reported by victims, making it imperative that friends and family members can recognize the signs of elder abuse. Some of the most common physical injuries from abuse include bedsores, falls, fractures, open wounds, bruises, overmedication, malnutrition, dehydration, and infections. Financial abuse is also a very prevalent form of elder and dependent abuse and is oftentimes harder to detect.
Under the Elder Abuse Act, victims and their families may recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral costs, and even punitive damages in cases of intentionally atrocious abuse or neglect. PARRIS elder abuse lawyers handle all elder abuse cases on a contingency basis, which means that you pay no fees or costs until a recovery is made in your case.
