NYC Elder Abuse Lawyer

Adult Day Care Negligence Lawsuit Lawyers

Elder abuse can exact a devastating toll on the victim and, frequently, on the victim’s loved ones who trusted and paid the caregiver. Elder abuse can shorten a victim’s life, amplify health problems, or cause extensive injuries that cause pain, immobility, and profound psychological distress. 

 

If you or your elderly loved one suffered harm through the abusive, neglectful, or careless behavior of a caregiver in NYC, either at home or a care facility, you may have the right to receive compensation. The experienced elder abuse lawyers at Dalli & Marino, LLP can explain your options and work with you to make sure your loved one’s rights are protected.

What Is Elder Abuse?

Elder abuse consists of any act or pattern of behavior that negligently, recklessly, or intentionally harms a person age 60 or older. It can include: 

  • Infliction of physical injuries or health problems
  • Infliction of emotional distress 
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Neglect (including self-neglect), leading to any of the above types of harm

Elder abuse can be committed by anyone in a caregiving role, whether official or unofficial, paid or unpaid, part-time or permanent. It can happen at the victim’s or abuser’s home, in social, commercial, or work settings frequented by elderly individuals, or at residential care facilities like nursing homes and rehab hospitals. Abusers can include spouses, family members, friends, acquaintances, professional caregivers, nursing home staff, and professionals like accountants or financial advisors.

Legal Remedies for Elder Abuse

Victims of elder abuse have the right to hold their abuser, and anyone answerable for the abuser’s conduct (like an employer or insurer), accountable for the harm they’ve suffered. They can report elder abuse to authorities for potential criminal prosecution, or they can also take legal action with the help of a skilled elder law attorney to demand financial compensation from their abuser and others responsible for the abuse. 

At Dalli & Marino, LLP,  we have years of experience representing elder abuse victims to make sure that their rights are protected. We can work with you to receive compensation for many kinds of damages, including: 

  • Medical expenses in treating physical or emotional conditions resulting from the abuse
  • Costs of transferring to alternative caregivers or care settings
  • Losses caused by financial exploitation, other losses of income, or expenses incurred because of abusive conduct
  • Physical pain and discomfort from abuse-related injuries, health problems, or medical treatments
  • Emotional distress and mental health challenges
  • Diminished quality of life

Elder abuse can involve acts of emotional, mental, and physical violence. For that reason, our team will also represent you in court if need be. Depending on the severity of abuse, the court may award punitive damages as punishment for an abuser’s misconduct.
