For Legal Counsel On Elder Abuse In California

If you suspect a loved one has been abused or neglected in a long-term care facility in Los Angeles or anywhere in Southern California or across the state, talk to an attorney. Steven D. Davis Law Group A Professional Corporation in Santa Monica is a valuable resource and source of advocacy for families of elderly or disabled residents who have been abused or neglected in long-term care facilities.

Elder abuse takes various forms in long-term care situations, including:

  • Failure to monitor
  • Failure to turn residents, keep skin clean and otherwise prevent bedsores
  • Failure to diagnose and treat minor injuries and ailments in a timely manner
  • Failure to ensure basic well-being, including hydration and nourishment
  • Failure to properly clean and care for elderly residents
  • Overmedication
  • Failure to follow doctors' or nurses' orders
  • Mental or emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse, often evidenced by unexplained bruises
  • Verbal abuse

Elderly and disabled residents of nursing homes are vulnerable and dependent on proper treatment by their caregivers. Nursing homes have a responsibility to treat residents humanely and watch out for their health and safety. Failing to fulfill these basic responsibilities and instead subjecting them to abuse amounts to nursing home neglect.

Our role as plaintiffs attorneys in elder abuse cases includes aspects such as:

  • Listening to clients' stories
  • Investigating to uncover facts
  • Analyzing facts in light of the law
  • Preparing compelling arguments in our clients' favor
  • Entering into settlement negotiations or taking arguments before judges and juries

We represent nursing home negligence clients on a contingency basis. Attorneys' fees are due only when compensation is recovered.
