Caring Representation for Victims of Abuse and Their Families
Our nation's elders deserve to be treated with dignity, care and respect. Unfortunately, all too often, seniors become victims of abuse and neglect. Their vulnerable state makes it easy for such mistreatment to go unnoticed for a time. However, when unexplained bruises or falls jeopardize a senior's well-being, it is time to take action.
If you have an elderly parent, relative or loved one whom you suspect may be suffering abuse, contact the law firm of Almanzar & Youngers, P.A., in New Mexico. With offices in Santa Fe and Las Cruces, our elder abuse attorneys provide caring and competent representation for seniors and their families throughout the state. Our lawyers have more than four decades of combined experience helping people like you.
We understand how difficult and frustrating it can be to face the reality that your loved one was mistreated. We will work hard to ensure that justice is done.
How Does Elder Abuse Happen?
Elder abuse is on the rise in nursing homes, senior living facilities and other care institutions across the country. Although anyone can be a perpetrator, such abuse often occurs at the hands of caretakers who are charged with the elder's well-being. Overcrowded and understaffed facilities as well as inadequate training can lead to unfortunate incidences of physical abuse.
Neglect is another form of abuse that can be just as harmful as physical abuse. It often leads to falls, bedsores and other complications that can worsen the victim's already fragile medical state. Even a single fall due to neglect is inexcusable; any fall can have a drastic impact on your loved one's long-term health and quality of life.
