Often times, elderly victims in cases of abuse or neglect do not know to whom they should turn or what, if any, legal action they can take. Recently, Southern California has seen a rise in the number of court cases that deal with nursing home and elderly abuse. Abuse and negligence involving the elderly can come in many different forms. Incidents at nursing and funeral homes have defrauded these victims out of a great deal of money, and the elderly have been targets of the theft of valuable items and money. Many have suffered serious injuries, and, in other cases, abuse and neglect have resulted in death.
It is important to protect the rights of seniors. The majority of those who care for the elderly do a tremendous job and are good, honest, hardworking and trustworthy people.
