Seniors and dependent adults require special attention and care, and this often extends beyond what a family member can provide. This opens the door to in-home care and to the placement of elderly and infirm loved ones in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or elder care centers. Unfortunately, this also opens the door to abuse, mistreatment, and neglect.
Serving Los Angeles and all of California, Garcia & Artigliere represents plaintiffs in personal injury and wrongful death actions involving all forms of elder abuse and negligence. With offices located in multiple states, we also represent clients nationwide.
Our primary practice areas in this field include nursing home abuse, elder abuse, and wrongful death. Cases may involve pressure sores (bedsores), physical or sexual abuse, psychological abuse, falls, or fecal impaction. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the event and resulting injuries, our Los Angeles elder abuse lawyers have the know-how and experience to seek swift justice.
How Our Elder Abuse Attorneys Can Help
Attempting to take legal action after the injury or loss of an elderly loved one can be a challenging undertaking for many reasons. Most people lack the legal knowledge to determine whether they have grounds for a claim and how to proceed, and nursing homes and their insurance companies can prove formidable opponents. They may pressure a claimant to accept an unfairly low settlement or may deny wrongdoing altogether.
At Garcia & Artigliere, we have over 100 years of collective legal experience. We have acted as counsel in cases resulting in over $1.3 billion in recoveries. We are nationally known for our elder abuse advocacy. Our Los Angeles elder abuse attorneys are qualified to help with your case, and we know how to maximize your recovery while holding at-fault parties fully accountable.
