Sexual Abuse of Elderly or Dependent Persons in Nursing Homes and Skilled Nursing Facilities
Like children, the elderly are also extremely vulnerable members of our society. Tragically, far too many elder and dependent adults are often sexually abused while in the care of a nursing home/skilled nursing facility. Sadly, this abuse often goes unreported because victims feel shame and embarrassment that prevent them from taking action against those responsible. Elderly and dependent adult victims of sexual abuse desperately need an advocate to fight for their rights. The experienced attorneys at Greer & Rineer will fight to hold the responsible parties liable and will seek all remedies available under the law.
In addition to sexual abuse, there are multiple types of elder abuse. These include, physical abuse, neglect, financial abuse, abandonment, isolation and abduction. As former medical malpractice defense litigators, the attorneys at Greer & Rineer have a unique experience and perspective in litigating and advocating on behalf of their elderly victim clients.
