Nursing home abuse and neglect is inexcusable.

As an industry, assisted care facilities and nursing homes are not doing a good job of caring for residents. In too many facilities, money is more important than simply meeting obligations to residents.

The results of elder abuse is frightening:

When nursing homes do not meet the appropriate standard of care, when they are challenged in court, when they are made to pay compensation for elder abuse and neglect, there is more of an incentive to treat residents with the care they deserve. The Chandler Law Firm has years of success and experience in fighting against nursing home abuse and neglect. Many elderly people are victims of financial abuse.

Why Elder Abuse is Possible:

Elder abuse becomes possible when seniors become confused about what is happening and individuals and/or businesses behave like vultures and take advantage of that confusion.

Elder Abuse in Recent News

Corporate giant Allianz was indicted on RICO charges for selling deferred annuities to the elderly. On March 4, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California issued its latest ruling in the long-running consolidated class-action saga Negrete v. Allianz Life Ins. Co. of North America (No. CV 05-6838) and Healey v. Allianz Life Ins. Co. of North America (No. CV 05-6838). In this ruling, Judge Christina Snyder dismissed Allianz’s motion for judgment on the pleadings, finding that plaintiffs’ claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, 18 U.S.C. § 1962(c) (RICO) and California’s “elder abuse” statute, Cal. Welf. & Inst. Code §§ 15610 et seq. (Elder Abuse Act), could proceed. Elder Abuse occurs more often than you think, in fact it is unfortunately, very common.
