Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in San Francisco

Over 500,000 people are victims of elder abuse each year in the United States. Vulnerable seniors frequently lack the ability to communicate that they are being abused or remain silent out of fear. Seniors deserve to age with dignity and grace. Sadly, this is often not the case.

The Cartwright Law Firm Inc.’s team of Nursing Home Abuse attorneys aggressively fights to ensure that elderly and disabled persons get the care that they deserve and hold abusers accountable for their despicable acts. In addition to the Bay Area, we have offices in North Bay and Vacaville. Call us to schedule a free consultation at 415-433-0444.

One of every five senior citizens will be a victim of elder abuse in their lifetimes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has classified six types of abuse:

  1. Physical abuse
  2. Sexual abuse
  3. Emotional abuse
  4. Neglect
  5. Abandonment
  6. Financial abuse

If you are aware of or suspect any of the abuse listed above, a thorough investigation must be conducted. Contact our team of nursing home abuse lawyers today for a free initial case evaluation.

The California Legislature has created powerful legal protections to combat this rampant abuse. Seniors and disabled persons can recover punitive, pain and suffering, and economic damages when their perpetrator’s abuse rises to the level of recklessness, fraud, or malice.
