Elder Abuse and Fraud
Elder abuse can occur in the context of a person’s home or apartment. Elder abuse often involves a person in a position of trust using that position to steal money or otherwise commit financial fraud. It can also involve blackmail, when a home caregiver or relative refuses to give the elderly victim food until he or she signs money or property over.
Under California law, nursing home damages are tripled under our state’s health and welfare codes. Settlements and verdicts include all attorney fees.
