Potentially Recoverable Damages in an Abuse or Neglect Case Against Jolley Acres Healthcare Center
Elderly victims are especially vulnerable. When they suffer physical or psychological abuse or must fend for themselves because of neglect, the resulting harm can be great.
Some recoverable damages we see in elder abuse cases include:
- Relocation costs: The priority is to get your loved one out of harm’s way. If you haven’t already, this may mean moving them out of Jolley Acres Healthcare Center. Our team will seek coverage for the cost of relocation.
- Medical expenses: Any medical costs resulting from abuse or neglect should be recoverable. Though the elderly often need medical care as a regular course of life, medical expenses caused by abuse and neglect are not normal—no matter if a defendant claims they are.
- Pain and suffering: Elder abuse and neglect cause suffering. We know this partly because authorities like the National Institute on Aging (NIA) tell us so. Your own eyes and instincts may show you that your loved one has suffered.
- Financial losses: If your loved one is the victim of financial exploitation, we’ll identify the cost of their monetary losses.
Every elder abuse and neglect case is unique. Our team will work with you, your loved one, and informed experts to recognize all recoverable damages.
