Tampa Elder Abuse Attorneys
Protecting Seniors from Domestic Violence
As family members age, they may become frail and less aware of their surroundings due to a more fragile physical condition. It is an unfortunate fact that some elder family members are subject to abuse by members of their own family. Elder abuse taking place in a person’s own home can be painful, humiliating, dangerous, and even life-threatening.
Elder abuse is often inflicted by:
- Other family members
