The abuse of elder people can occur by nursing home staffers, family members, friends, and others who come in contact with elder people living at home. Often, the abuse is physical, but emotional and physiological abuse also can occur to take money or property from them.
If you suspect elder abuse, you may hire a Portland attorney on their behalf to investigate the abusive conduct and represent their interests, including a civil lawsuit. If the abuser is a family member, the attorney can petition the court for a restraining order to keep that person from further contact.
