Do You Suspect Elder Abuse?

The abuse of elder people can occur by nursing home staffers, family members, friends, and others who come in contact with elder people living at home. Often, the abuse is physical, but emotional and physiological abuse also can occur to take money or property from them.

Stopping Elder Abuse

If you suspect elder abuse, you may hire a Calera attorney on their behalf to investigate the abusive conduct and represent their interests, including a civil lawsuit. If the abuser is a family member, the attorney can petition the court for a restraining order to keep that person from further contact.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court.
