Verbal Abuse of Elderly Victims

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Elder Abuse Attorney
When elderly victims are being verbally abused, the abuser is seeking to control the victim.  This is to gain access to something that the abuser wants, thus leading to financial abuse of the elderly victims.
Elderly verbal abuse victims often feel that they cannot stand up to the abuser, so they simply comply with their requests.  The elderly victim will feel a sense of emotional distress over being constantly abused and harassed.
If you feel that an elder in your family is being verbally abused, then you should first contact adult protective services.  Adult protective services will make sure that the person is in a safe place after they investigate the elder’s situation.
If the verbal abuse has already progressed into financial abuse; or occurred in a nursing home environment, then you should contact an attorney.  An NJ elder abuse attorney can conduct a review of your case to see if you are eligible for compensation.
Additionally, a NJ elder abuse attorney can help make sure that your case proceeds through the legal system in a timely and efficient manner.  You do not want any elders in your family to be neglected by the legal system.
