Elder Abuse

San Francisco Elder Abuse Attorneys

Was your disabled or elderly loved one abused?

The decision to move an elderly or disabled loved one into a skilled treatment facility can be difficult for anyone. This choice is usually made after the family determines that the home environment does not provide the care, treatment, and safety that the individual deserves. It would then be gut-wrenching to learn that thousands of vulnerable, elderly and disabled residents of skilled facilities suffer from nursing home abuse and neglect every year.

If your loved one has been a victim of abuse in a nursing home or professional care facility – or if you have reason to suspect as much – you need to contact our team of professional medical malpractice and elder law attorneys in San Francisco at Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn right away. We have more than three decades of experience protecting the rights of unlawful injury victims and providing them with reliable support.

If you believe your loved one is being abused, call RFTM at (415) 940-7176 today.

Do Not Let Your Loved Ones Suffer from Abuse

Neglect, recklessness, or malicious intent can harm your elders or disabled family members in a number of ways. Fortunately, you do not have to sit by and watch harm come to your loved ones. With litigation and careful attention, most can be prevented or ceased. There are many ways abuse can occur in elders or the disabled in care facilities:

  • Bedsores
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Inadequate staffing or security
  • Lack of supervision
  • Sexual assault
  • Unsanitary and unclean conditions
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Theft or coercion
