Physical Abuse Lawyer

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and all Arizona cities and communities

Elder abuse is one of the most malicious, devastating, and distressing forms of mistreatment that exists. Senior citizens who necessitate help from others, simply to carry out daily activities, cannot protect themselves from physical abuse. Unfortunately, however, physical abuse of this age group is a relatively common phenomenon. It occurs at home and in caretaking institutions such as nursing homes. Victims of such treatment suffer both physical and emotional injury.

Signs of Elder Abuse

The use of abusive force is never an acceptable way to resolve conflicts or to release frustrations with certain situations. However, many times, care giving institutions may lack the means to hire capable individuals or train their employees adequately. Families who are tied down to caring for their elders may feel frustrated with these situations. Under such circumstances, senior citizens are more likely to suffer physical abuse from their caretakers.

If someone close to you exhibits any of the following signs of elder abuse, then you may want to further investigate the situation:

  • Bruises, welts, cuts, and lacerations
  • Fractures or broken bones
  • Sprains or dislocations
  • Signs of wounds in various healing stages
  • Changes in the elder’s behavior
  • Caregiver being overprotective of the elder
  • Reports from the elder of being abused

No one should have to suffer from such maltreatment, especially if he or she lacks the means to fight back against it. If someone close to you has been a victim of elder abuse, call the Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff elder physical abuse lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, PLC today.
