Physical Abuse

Southern California Elder Abuse Attorney

Nothing is more cowardly than the physical abuse of those who are unable to care for themselves. When we entrust the care of our parents, grandparents or other family members to a care facility, we expect them to be treated with respect and dignity. All too often, however, seniors are becoming victims of physical abuse at the hands of their caregivers. This is an outrage that must be stopped.

At The Law Offices of Kevin P. Kane, I am deeply committed to helping individuals and families throughout Southern California pursue justice on behalf of elderly family members who have suffered physical abuse.

Contact me today to discuss the possibility of litigation if you suspect your loved one has suffered physical abuse at the hands of a caregiver. I have been successful in obtaining for my clients verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million for pain and suffering on numerous occasions, and I stand ready to assist you and your family in your quest for justice.

Lawyer Providing Skilled Representation for All Types of Physical Abuse

Some common examples of physical abuse include:

  • Assault and battery resulting in obvious lacerations, abrasions, fractures, welts, bruises, discoloration or swelling
  • Burns caused by cigarettes, ropes or other bonds
  • Detached retina, bleeding or scalp wounds

If you have entrusted the care of a grandparent, parent or other family member to a nursing home, assisted living facility or other health care provider, you need to be aware of the warning signs of physical abuse. If you suspect something is not right, act immediately.

Contact me today to schedule your free initial consultation. The vast majority of the cases I accept are handled on a contingency basis - you pay nothing unless we recover a favorable verdict or settlement for you.
