Elder Abuse, Nursing Home Claims

November 13, 2010--The disabled and elderly have significant protections under Federal and state law in California.  Most notably, the California Elder Abuse Act affords the family of a mistreated patient access to enhanced remedies including recovery of attorneys fees, punitive damages, and pre-death pain and suffering, in addition to wrongful death damages where appropriate.

Our recent successes involved a demented patient who escaped from a rest home due to an expired battery on his security bracelet (he walked 3 blocks, fell down a ravine and died within days); a patient sent to the doctor's office unescorted who fell and fractured her leg and then also due to poor care received a fatal infection; a woman at a mental hospital who was not properly strapped into her chair and who was found hours later strangled in her straps; and finally an infant who was delivered to her parent's home by a child care provided in a lifeless state.  The first two cases have been successfully resolved and the last two are currently pending.

We can take cases anywhere within California.  Please give us a call.  Attorney John Rozier  559-713-0159.
