Elder Abuse Lawyers in Los Angeles to Hold Home Health Aides Accountable
The healthcare provided in your home should be of the highest quality. But, unfortunately, a company that provides home healthcare may not monitor or train their employees effectively. Some may not perform a thorough investigation into their employees' backgrounds. A not-for-profit organization or a public entity that provides in-home care may also fail to prioritize safety. Neglect, physical abuse, financial abuse, intimidation, psychological torture, and sexual assault may all occur because an organization failed to prioritize the safety and dignity of their in-home patients.
The S & S Legal Group has elder abuse lawyers in Los Angeles who will hold home health aides accountable. Not only will we pursue maximum compensation from the individual responsible for the abuse, but we will hold their employer accountable as well. This may encourage them to improve their professional practices so that no one else suffers because of their negligence.
If a trusted aide has engaged in abuse or neglect, they cannot simply be fired; they must be held accountable. We have the legal experience and the investigative resources to collect the appropriate evidence and fight for your rights to justice and compensation.
There is no excuse for abuse. Call our Los Angeles elder abuse law firm if you have questions about in-home healthcare abuse. We have answers at 800-957-9898.
