Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Claims
Our elders and dependent adults are one of the most vulnerable groups in society. Unfortunately, they fall victim to physical and financial abuse all too often. The physical abuse of elders and dependent adults often occurs in medical settings (hospitals, nursing homes, live-in care centers, etc.). In those instances, it is often appropriate to file claims for elder or dependent adult abuse in connection with medical malpractice claims.
Workman Law & Litigation has years of experience representing healthcare providers against claims of elder and dependent adult abuse. With that experience, we are now in the best position to pursue those claims as we know exactly how the healthcare providers will attempt to defend against those claims. Like medical malpractice, elder and dependent adult abuse claims are factually and legally complex, time-consuming, unpredictable, and generally costly.
While most elder and dependent adult abuse claims arise in healthcare settings, not all do. Sometimes, elders and dependent adults are subjected to physical or financial abuse by family members, supposed friends, or neighbors. At Workman Law & Litigation, we are experienced in representing clients with all types of elder and dependent adult abuse claims.
Because of the heightened remedies available for these claims, defendants and their insurance companies fight even harder to defend against them.

You need someone who specializes in this area, understands the underlying medical issues, and remains up-to-date on all changes in the law. These are the services that we provide here at Workman Law & Litigation.
