Discovering abuse places a person in a difficult situation.

At Pacific Attorney Group, we will be happy to talk to you about your particular case in order to offer you honest advice as to what you can do at this point to protect your loved one and your right to take legal action. During a free, confidential consultation, a Los Angeles elder abuse attorney at our offices can address your unique concerns and offer you much-needed guidance.
What to Do When You Discover Abuse
If you suspect that your loved one is being subjected to ill treatment or if you have observed any signs of abuse, do not hesitate to become involved. Ask questions, visit the facility frequently and on varying schedules, and contact a lawyer to talk about your potential legal options. Even if you only have a "feeling" and do not have any proof to back your suspicions, you may be right. It is better to act, as the serious repercussions of elder abuse far outweigh embarrassment or insulting a caregiver by an unnecessary investigation. In addition to offering you initial information or advice, a lawyer can work with other professionals to investigate the situation and determine whether abuse is occurring and how to prove this in court.
