Common Cases Of Elder Abuse In DuPage And Cook County

The term “elder abuse” encompasses a variety of situations involving the mistreatment of an elderly individual. Our law firm represents people who have been accused of elder abuse, including the following situations:

  • Financial elder abuse – Including the manipulation of bank accounts, adding other names to bank accounts, inheritance fraud, credit card use, fraudulent use of bank accounts, taking out second mortgages in another’s name, investment fraud and more.
  • Physical elder abuse – We defend family members and caregivers who have been accused of physical elder abuse. This includes but is not limited to nursing home abuse.
  • Neglect – In this case, the abuse results not from what is done, but from what is not done. Elder neglect can include failing to care for an elderly individual or purposely withholding medications.
