Southern California Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Outrage. Anger. Frustration. Sorrow. Guilt. These words only begin to describe the feelings of families who have been shaken to their very core by the abuse or neglect of a loved one by a caregiver, nursing home employee or other custodial care worker.
At the Los Angeles, California, law office of Kevin P. Kane & Associates, I understand those feelings and the desire for justice on the behalf of your loved one and your family. No family should have to endure the pain of such cruelty. That is why I have dedicated my practice to helping seniors and their families hold nursing homes, hospitals, elder care facilities and their employees responsible for acts of abuse.
Contact me today if you believe a loved one or family member has been a victim of elder neglect or nursing home abuse.
Attorney Dedicated to Eliminating Elder Abuse
As an elder abuse attorney, I am deeply and passionately committed to doing whatever I can to stop this outrage and hold these institutions responsible for their abuse of our elders. Nothing can change the horrors that your loved ones have faced, but effective, targeted litigation can help to ensure systemic change in nursing homes, protecting other residents and sparing other families the heartbreak you have endured.
California law makes a clear distinction between elder abuse and elder neglect. Although both are heartbreaking and wholly unacceptable, I focus my legal practice on the most serious abuse cases. I have attained jury verdicts and settlements for my clients in excess of $1 million on cases involving outrageous abuse at institutions in California entrusted with the care of our elders.
Handling All Types of Nursing Home Abuse
Elder abuse can take many forms, including:
How do you know if abuse or neglect is occurring? There are warning signs of abuse: physical injuries or marks on the body, signs of dehydration or malnutrition, depression, sudden weight loss and many others.
If you suspect a family member has suffered abuse at the hands of a caregiver, nursing home facility, hospital or other care facility, contact me today for a free initial consultation. I accept most cases on a contingency fee basis - you pay nothing unless you win.
