Elder Abuse Lawyers in North Charleston, South Carolina
Elder Abuse is a single, or repeated act or act of appropriate action, occurring in any relationship where there is an expectation of trust that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult.
Elder abuse can take many forms. Whether it be physical abuse, sexual abuse/abusive sexual contact, emotional or psychological abuse, neglect or financial abuse/exploitation of a vulnerable elderly person, we feel the need to help provide a voice for those that may not be able. Often times, when abuse occurs in a facility, there are likely other residents who are also being neglected or abused. Sometimes the facility’s history of federal and state violations may indicate a pattern of abuse. When a family chooses us to represent their loved one, we throughly investigate the nursing home or residential facility to unearth patterns and facts that will help your case.
