Nursing Home Theft
When you entrust a loved one to the care of a nursing home, you expect that proper care will be provided. You also expect that your loved one's valuables will be safe and secure. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. We have seen cases in which residents steal each other's money and property, or people who come to visit the nursing home commit theft. We have seen cases in which unscrupulous employees are caught stealing from those they have been hired to care for. Our attorneys will take action to recover what has been lost.
Financial Abuse in Nursing Homes
A skilled and ethical financial adviser knows that senior citizens should be provided with conservative investments. High-risk investments simply do not make sense, because elderly people do not have sufficient time to recoup losses at such a late stage in their lives. Unfortunately, conservative investments do not typically yield significant commissions for financial advisers. Unscrupulous financial advisers may take advantage of an elderly person by convincing him or her to make overly risky investments. This is nothing short of financial adviser malpractice or stockbroker fraud, and we will seek compensation for any savings that an elderly person loses as a result.
