Where does elder abuse occur?
As people grow older, they become more and more vulnerable and dependent on others for care and protection. Unfortunately, people who are trusted to care for elderly individuals have been known to sexually abuse them. Elder abuse is a growing concern across the nation. As the number of nursing home and care center patients rise, so too do the rates of elderly sexual abuse. This is often a form of medical malpractice, but can also occur at the hands of other patients. Elderly sexual abuse can also occur at home at the hands of a family member or caretaker. If you or someone you know has experienced elderly sexual abuse, contact us for a free and confidential consultation.
Damage Caused by Elderly Sexual Abuse
The consequences of sexual abuse against an elderly individual can be severe. Emotional damage can instill fear and anxiety in the victim which can then affect their overall health. Physical injury is highly possible, as well, especially given the fact that elderly individuals are more physically fragile. If you or a loved one has suffered from elderly sexual abuse, you have every right to take legal action and fight for compensation and justice.
