Elder Abuse Attorney Serving San Francisco
The elderly are some of the most vulnerable members of society. It is an unfortunate fact that some people take advantage of this fact, abusing the elderly for profit or for pleasure. At the Law Office of Eduardo Robles, we are passionate advocates of the elderly and their loved ones. We pursue elder abuse cases with tenacity, investigating and gathering evidence to demonstrate when wrongdoing is occurring. We can help you put a stop to what is happening, and get you compensation in the process.
Caregivers, medical providers and even family and friends can be responsible for elder abuse. If you suspect such abuse, it is important that you contact our firm immediately. We can advise you on your legal options, and help you end the abuse and hold those responsible accountable.
Financial Exploitation And Physical Abuse
Elder abuse can take several forms, including both financial exploitation and physical abuse. Financial abuse drains the limited resources of the elderly, leading to financial hardship and possibly loss of inheritance for heirs. Physical abuse is even more disturbing, when those who should be caring for the individual choose to inflict physical harm. Both types of abuse are reprehensible – yet all too common.
Protecting The Elderly
Our firm can help you obtain protection orders to protect yourself or your loved one. We can also help you take legal action against those who commit abuse. Our goal is to protect your and your interests, while ensuring that abusers are held accountable for their actions. Whether you are the victim or a loved one, we want you to know that we are here to help.
Please contact attorney Eduardo Robles today to discuss your elder abuse case. Our firm works with clients throughout San Francisco/Bay Area, Alameda County and Santa Clara County. We look forward to taking your call.
What does elder neglect look like? Below are just some of the most unfortunate common examples I have seen:
- Bedridden patients who are not sufficiently turned, causing bedsores that can result in potentially fatal sepsis
- Renal failure resulting from inadequate hydration
- Mishandling of patients during transfer to or from their beds
- Failure to diagnose medical conditions
- Medication errors, including missed doses, improper doses and swapped medications
In cases where nursing home staff or administration have demonstrated neglect, I can help families recover compensation not just for the medical costs incurred, but also for the pain and suffering a loved one has endured. I take seriously my role in helping ensure that my clients receive the care they need and deserve — and in sending a message to care providers that abuse and neglect will never be tolerated.
