|Elder Abuse Facts
|The crime of Elder Abuse encompasses not only the physical abuse of an elder person, but also the financial defrauding of a vulnerable and elder person. Caretakers for elderly persons are often accused of exploiting and defrauding the elderly person(s) they care for, especially when the caretaker has been entrusted with managing the elderly person’s financial affairs.
Accusations of physical abuse are often difficult to prove because the elderly person has pre-existing conditions that may explain all or some of the alleged injuries. Apportionment of injuries and isolating causes can thus become the issue of debate and subject to expert medical testimony.
Quite often, such cases are based on thin evidence consisting of disorganized financial records, vague accusations of family members with little knowledge of the financial affairs of the elder person (except an expectation of an inheritance) and interviews of feeble elderly victims where the interviewer leads the witness like a child. It is therefore critical that you hire an experienced criminal lawyer to help defend your rights.
