Elder Abuse

Nurse Threatening an elderElder abuse is any form of mistreatment that results in harm or loss to an elderly person. Often it is necessary to place a loved one in a nursing home, an assisted living facility or hire a home health aide because of the inability to provide the level of care that is needed. When we entrust our loved one's health to another, there is an expectation that he or she will be treated with the utmost care. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Tragically, many are neglected and suffer preventable harm at the hands of the very caregivers that were tasked with keeping our loved ones healthy and safe. An estimated 1 in 6 nursing home residents may be victims of elder abuse every year. Holding negligent caregivers accountable for their actions will hopefully prevent future harm to others in like circumstances. If a loved one close to you has been the victim of elder abuse, you should speak to an attorney about the legal recourse that may be available to you. The Stuart elder abuse attorneys at Donaldson & Weston are here to help.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
