03. Elder Abuse / Neglect
Claims involving care and treatment provided to a vulnerable person
Many states have enacted laws designed to protect those who are unable to protect themselves due to some temporary or permanent mental or physical condition. Defending these types of elder abuse/neglect claims requires a deep knowledge and mastery of the applicable state and federal regulations that govern the types of facilities that provide care and treatment to vulnerable adults. Families often do not understand the terminal disease processes of their elderly loved ones, and blame the care providers when markers of expected decline are observed. SLG attorneys know exactly how to prove when healthcare providers complied with the applicable standard of care and did not abuse or neglect the decedent. SLG attorneys are skilled at presenting evidence which highlights the humanity and compassion of the dedicated care providers who are devoted to caring for seniors.
