Los Angeles Elder Abuse Attorney
Helping You Seek Compensation for Physical Abuse
Physical elder abuse is the intentional use of physical force against an elderly person that results in pain, injury, or impairment. Such abuse includes not only physical assaults (e.g., hitting, slapping, shoving, pushing, and burning) on elderly individuals, but the inappropriate use and mismanagement of drugs (under- or over-prescribed medication), and improper restraints or confinement methods such as ropes or chains. Physical abuse also includes physical punishment of an elder of any kind.
