There is No Excuse for Elder Neglect
Tragically, the neglect and abuse of elders and dependent adults is a serious problem. The treatment our loved ones receive is often very different from the “compassionate care” promised in corporate brochures and advertisements.
The state of California has passed special laws to encourage victims of neglect and abuse, and their families, to hold long-term care facilities responsible under the law. By increasing the damages these victims can recover, such facilities are deterred from reducing the quality of the care they provide to their patients, simply to make more money.
The attorneys at The Gebler Firm, PC believe that protecting elders and dependent adults from neglect and abuse is more than the practice of law – it is a life mission. If you suspect someone you love has suffered physical or emotional injuries from neglect or abuse, contact The Gebler Firm, PC at 1-800-871-6998 for a free consultation, or fill out an on-line consultation request.
Together, we can make a difference in the way our loved ones are treated.
