Long Beach Elder Abuse Lawyer

Protecting Our Elders: Elder Abuse Legal Help in Long Beach

Elder abuse is a serious and growing problem. Seniors are vulnerable to physical, emotional, and financial exploitation by caregivers, family members, or strangers. If you suspect an elder loved one is being abused, neglected, or exploited, you can take action. Gaylord & Nantais, a dedicated personal injury law firm in Long Beach, California, is here to fight for their rights.

Why Choose Gaylord & Nantais for Your Elder Abuse Case?

Elder Abuse Expertise:

We understand the complexities of elder abuse cases and the tactics used by abusers to conceal their actions.

Relentless Advocacy:

Our skilled lawyers aggressively pursue justice and maximum compensation for abused elders, including financial restitution and holding abusers accountable

Protecting Their Future:

We fight to ensure your loved one's safety and financial security, both now and in the future.

Compassionate Representation:

We treat your loved one with respect and dignity throughout the legal process. We understand the emotional toll of elder abuse on both the victim and their family.

How We Can Help You:

  • Investigate the Abuse: We work discreetly to gather evidence, including medical records, witness statements, financial records, and social services reports to build a strong case on your loved one’s behalf.
  • Hold Abusers Accountable: We fight to hold abusers legally and financially responsible for their actions, seeking compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any stolen assets.
  • Protect Your Loved One’s Assets: We can help you explore legal options to protect your loved one’s assets from further exploitation.
  • Ensure Long-Term Care: We can assist you in securing appropriate long-term care facilities or in-home care for your loved one, ensuring their safety and well-being.
    Work with Law Enforcement (if necessary): If criminal charges are warranted, we can work with law enforcement to ensure the abuser is prosecuted.

Recognizing the Signs of Elder Abuse: Protecting Your Loved Ones

Elder abuse can be difficult to detect, as abusers often exploit an elder’s trust and vulnerability. Here are some warning signs to be aware of:
  • Physical Signs: Unexplained bruises, cuts, burns, or fractures; signs of medication mismanagement; poor hygiene or malnourishment.
  • Emotional Signs: Depression, anxiety, withdrawal from social activities; fear or reluctance to be around certain caregivers or family members; unusual changes in personality or behavior.
  • Financial Signs: Missing money or valuables; unexplained charges on bank statements; sudden changes in wills or power of attorney documents.
  • Neglect Signs: Unsanitary living conditions; bedsores or pressure ulcers; dehydration or malnutrition; lack of medical care.

Working with Adult Protective Services and Law Enforcement

If you suspect elder abuse, contacting Adult Protective Services (APS) is a critical step. APS is a government agency responsible for investigating reports of elder abuse and neglect. They can assess the situation, develop a safety plan for your loved one, and take legal action against the abuser if necessary. In some cases, law enforcement may also need to be involved. If there is evidence of physical assault, sexual abuse, or financial crimes, we can work with you to file a police report and ensure the abuser is held accountable. Gaylord & Nantais understands the sensitive nature of elder abuse cases. We will handle all communication with APS and law enforcement with discretion and respect for your loved one’s privacy. Our goal is to ensure your loved one’s safety and well-being while holding the abuser accountable for their actions.

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Thomas on a claim and was very pleased with the outcome. He was very thorough in explaining everything needed to get the best chance at the desired results. Mr. Thomas showed a tremendous amount of dedication in making sure he provided a great client experience. He didn’t talk over my head, and he was patient with my questions. Mr. Thomas is super in touch and highly relatable to the everyday working American. He was a perfect fit for me and my family. We were pleased with the outcome on our injury case.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
