Elder Physical Abuse

Elder Physical Abuse

Was Your Elderly Loved One Physically Abused?

Keeping our loved ones safe during their golden years is important, but some people seek out senior citizens as targets for physical abuse. Abusers can come from any side, from acquaintances to caregivers to the victim’s immediate family. Elderly people are especially vulnerable due to their dependence on others to complete many tasks we take for granted during our youth, which makes it even more important to ensure they receive the protection they need.

Call us at (813) 518-7941 to discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer today.

Signs Of Abuse

One of the biggest problems loved ones face when determining whether or not their loved one is in danger is the possible inability or reluctance of the abused victim to speak up about their situation. Because not all victims will willingly or actively inform their caregivers about their concerns, it’s important to be on the lookout for possible signs, which include:


  • Unexplained hair or tooth loss
  • Bruising
  • Internal injuries (evidenced by pain, poorly functioning organs, bleeding from orifices, etc.)
  • Abrasions resembling rope or strap marks
  • Burns from cigarettes, appliances, hot water, etc.
  • Sprains, dislocations, fractures, broken bones, etc.


  • Delayed treatment
  • Receiving treatment from a number of different medical facilities (this is a tactic abusers may use to cover up patterns of abuse)
  • Conflicting explanations for injuries
  • Unconvincing explanations for injuries
  • Unexplained injuries
