Accused of mistreating a resident? Protect your good name with help from a nursing home abuse attorney in Fullerton CA.
By 2050, nearly 90 million Americans will be age 65 or older and 19 million will be age 85 or older. As the older population swells, so will nursing home populations. This may present increased possibilities for caregivers to be accused of abuse.
As a nursing home worker, you may face allegations of abuse in your career and some may even proceed to court. You will have the best possible chance of keeping unfounded allegations from ruining your reputation and destroying your livelihood if you get expert representation from Chambers Law Firm, an experienced nursing home abuse attorney in Fullerton CA.
Expert Defense for All Types of Abuse Charges
California law takes abuse of elders and other vulnerable individuals very seriously, and provides for many different types of abuse to form the basis for charges. This includes:
- Physical abuse
- Neglect and endangerment
- Emotional and psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
Dan E. Chambers prides himself on being an aggressive nursing home abuse attorney in Fullerton CA who will work hard to build a strong defense against charges for any type of abuse. He will not shy away from pursuing a challenging legal strategy if that provides the best possible chance of a favorable resolution to your case, but instead will work hard to gather the necessary evidence. In addition to securing evidence to support your position, he will also make a point of looking for evidence and arguments that will undermine the prosecution’s position, thus creating a two-pronged approach for your defense.
Accident or Abuse?
When nursing home residents cannot speak for themselves due to physical or mental problems, there arises a very real possibility for well-meaning family members to suspect abuse where there is none. For instance, let’s say a nursing home resident breaks their arm. Family might suspect a caregiver of causing the injury, but it could in reality have been caused by a fall. Your nursing home abuse attorney in Fullerton CA can help clear up the situation using the testimony of expert witnesses who can examine the evidence relating to the injury and say whether it is more likely to have been caused by an accident or abuse.
