Elder Abuse

Elder Abuse LAWSUITS

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.

NURSING HOME ABUSE

The elderly, or those over the age of 65, as well as dependent adults, are a vulnerable population 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 bed sores, 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.

RECOVERY AVAILABLE TO ELDER ABUSE VICTIMS

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.

THE CALIFORNIA ELDER ABUSE ACT

California enacted special legislation to help protect this population from abuse, called the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA), or the “Elder Abuse Act.” The Elder Abuse Act provides the abused and their loved ones with remedies to pursue when there has been financial, mental, or physical abuse perpetrated by caregivers, including doctors, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, home health agencies, and other care providers.

Before the Elder Abuse Act was passed, it was more difficult for victims and their loved ones to obtain justice in cases of elder abuse. Generally, if a victim died before their lawsuit was completed, their case would be closed and no recovery would be obtained by the victim’s family. Now, a victim may recover post-mortem for pain and suffering. The Elder Abuse Act also broadly defines what elder abuse is, making it easier for attorneys to prove liability under the law.
