Protecting Our Senior Citizens from Elder Abuse with Spodek Law Group
As we age, the fragility of our mental and physical abilities increases, making us heavily reliant on others for our basic needs. Heartbreakingly, this dependence can cause senior citizens to become vulnerable to abuse by caregivers who lack empathy or understanding. Elder abuse takes on many forms, such as physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and insidious financial scams designed to defraud elderly individuals of their hard-earned money.
Spodek Law Group: A Beacon of Hope and Justice Against Elder Abuse
At Spodek Law Group, the determined and compassionate team led by Attorney Todd Spodek is devoted to fighting elder abuse and holding abusers accountable for their malicious actions. The law firm recognizes that neglect is also a form of elder abuse, as failing to provide necessities like food or medication, or even moving an older person, can lead to malnutrition or the development of painful sores on their body.
Penalties for Engaging in Elder Abuse
Senior citizens deserve the utmost respect and care; thus, engaging in elder abuse carries dire consequences. Conviction on elder mistreatment charges could result in several years of imprisonment and considerable fines. Shockingly, even failing to report suspected cases of elder mistreatment can lead to jail time and hefty fines.
The degree of the inflicted harm generally determines the length of the prison sentence imposed on offenders. If an elderly person dies due to neglect or physical assault, charges could be upgraded from misdemeanor offenses to heinous felony crimes.
