Elder Abuse

The elder members of our society have lived through depression, world wars, radical political upheavals, and have provided wisdom and care for generations of people. They are revered for their history, honored for their contributions, and cared for with respect in these their golden years of life…at least they should be.

Because on incredible advances in medicine, more and more people are living longer, fuller lives. Unfortunately, not everyone who lives to be considered a senior citizen is treated with the proper care they need, and sometimes they are even abused.

The elder citizens of America deserve to be cared for with dignity and respect, but there are those who take advantage of these most vulnerable of people—this is called ‘elder abuse’ and it is a crime.

The types of elder abuse include:

  • Malnourishment
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Refusal to provide medical care or required medications

If you or someone you love is the victim of elder abuse, you owe it to yourself or them to get help. Contact a New Jersey personal injury lawyer through Jersey Personal Injury, and get the legal advice and action you need to right the wrongs that have been done.

The elders in society once held a place of honor, they were looked up to and respected—a personal injury lawyer will show you or your loved one they respect they deserve and do what they can to make sure that those who have abused you are held accountable.
The law and your lawyer are on your side.
