Types of Elder Abuse

San Diego Elder Abuse Law Firm

Also Fighting for Elders in Los Angeles & Throughout Southern California

At the law firm of Joel R. Bryant, our elder litigation team handles a wide variety of abuse issues pertaining to our most vulnerable citizens. Whether in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, elder daycare centers, or being cared for by at-home caretakers, the elderly are at risk of being abused and taken advantage of in various ways. These types of abuse can be due to neglect, carelessness, or malicious intent on the part of those whose role is to care for and protect them. Whatever the circumstances, the elderly and their families deserve justice when mistreatment, injury, wrongful death, financial exploitation, or other types of fraud are used against them by those in a position of trust or authority.

At Joel R. Bryant, we bring more than 30 years of experience to standing up for the rights and best interests of elders in all types of abuse and negligence matters. Our elder litigation team handles cases in both civil and probate courts. Due to our longstanding years in practice handling diverse elder abuse issues, our team is comfortable addressing them in both courts, unlike many of our competitors. We know how to attack cases from all angles in righting the wrongs suffered by the elderly who often cannot adequately speak for themselves, suffer from fear or retaliation if communicating the harm they have endured, and whose bodies and minds are often frail and compromised, making it a hardship for them to defend themselves.
