Elder Abuse Lawyers in Phoenix, AZ

The Importance of Reporting & Exposing Elder Abuse

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), elder abuse is experienced by 1 in 10 elders who live at home. An estimated 1 in 3 nursing homes are sites for abuse and neglect. Unfortunately, whether for reasons of fear of retaliation, an inability to communicate, or embarrassment, most instances of elder abuse go unreported. In fact, the CDC reports that for every 1 reported case of abuse, 23 more are not reported.

At Garcia & Artigliere, our Phoenix elder abuse lawyers have two key missions:

  1. To seek justice for those who have already been impacted by elder abuse.
  2. To expose these acts for what they are so offenders are penalized and to foster change in legislation and case law that prevents others from suffering similar fates.

Do not let elder abuse go unreported. If you have experienced or witnessed abusive conduct, or have noticed signs of abuse, call (602) 497-3458. We are standing by to advise you.
