Elder Abuse

[elder abuse photo]Baltimore elder abuse lawyer Joseph H. Ostad advocates for the elderly, who are often frail, dependent, and unable to speak up on their own behalf.  The elderly represent a segment of American society particularly susceptible to abuse. Such abuse manifests in several forms:

  • physical abuse, pain or injury,
  • sexual abuse, such as non-consensual sexual contact,
  • emotional or psychological mental anguish, including humiliation, intimidation, or threats,
  • financial or material exploitation, and
  • neglect , abandonment, and denial of food or health-related services.

Unfortunately, family members and health care workers sometime victimize the elderly who were entrusted to their care. With the proper legal guidance, a  concerned fried or relative can stop elder abuse.
