We represent victims or their families in cases of abuse or neglect by hospitals, doctors, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health agencies and other care providers. The Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act (EADACPA) protects elders (persons at least 65 years old) and dependent adults from such mistreatment by encouraging lawyers to sue on their behalf. Before EADACPA, wrongdoers often avoided responsibility for their acts by stonewalling claims until elderly victims passed away, at which point such lawsuits lost most of their value. EADACPA eliminated this loophole, and holds bad actors responsible even for those who die as a result of very bad care.
We have extensive experience with suits against those who abuse or neglectCalifornia’s elders and dependent adults. In addition to suits against private care providers, we pursue arbitrations against Kaiser Permanente and claims against government-owned hospitals and the Veterans Administration.
If you or your loved one were hurt in an elder-care setting, there is a good chance we can help. We work on contingency, which means we bear the costs of cases we pursue and are not paid a fee or reimbursed costs unless we obtain compensation for you. Please explore our site to learn more about what we do, what your options are, how to contact us, and what role you can play in improving elder and dependent adult care.
