Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
The Berman Law Group is pleased to announce that elder abuse lawyer services are part of the firm and these specialized attorneys are ready to help any individual with this type of legal case.
Elder abuse (also called "elder mistreatment," "senior abuse," "abuse in later life," "abuse of older adults," "abuse of older women," and "abuse of older men") is "a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person." These situations can call for an elder abuse lawsuit to be filed in the name of a loved one, and the Berman Law Group is prepared to handle any case.
This definition of elder abuse has been adopted by the World Health Organization. Laws protecting the elderly from abuse are similar to, and related to, laws protecting dependent adults from abuse. An elder abuse attorney can help sort out what are the key issues and determining factors around an individual's case, then begin the process toward legal action.
The core element to the harm of elder abuse is the "expectation of trust" of the older person toward their abuser. Thus, it includes harms by people the older person knows or with whom they have a relationship, such as a spouse, partner or family member, a friend or neighbor, or people that the older person relies on for services. Many forms of elder abuse are recognized as types of domestic violence or family violence.
Elder abuse is a serious matter that society is waking up to more and more every day. By using an elder abuse attorney at the Berman Law Group, an individual will be given an extensive amount of legal advice and support for a loved one in need of legal care.
