Alert! Sexual abuse? Visit our Chicago sex abuse page.

Have you or a loved one stayed silent after being abused by a care provider? You’re not alone. According to the American Psychological Association, it is estimated that each year 4 million elderly persons in the US are “victims of physical, psychological or other forms of abuse and neglect. For every case of elder abuse and neglect reported to authorities, experts estimate as many as 23 cases go undetected.” Most elderly persons stay silent due to fear of retaliation. The nursing home abuse attorneys at Malman Law want victims of abuse to know that our firm is on your side. When you hire our firm, we make sure that you get the compensation you deserve to begin the healing process. However, too often when abuse is kept silent, the side effects can be so severe that a victim ends up permanently injured or dead.

What is elderly abuse?

Elderly abuse is a growing issue in the United States. Elderly persons who cannot live independently often turn to nursing homes or long-term care facilities for their everyday living needs. These homes are required by state and federal regulations to treat residents fairly and with respect and dignity. Most elderly abuse comes in the form of physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, neglect and abandonment. It is often that elderly victims will experience multiple forms of abuse at once.
