Irvine Elderly Physical Abuse Attorneys

Do Not Take Any Chances

In many cases, an elderly victim of nursing home abuse will be reluctant to tell family members about experiencing physical abuse, and family can be reluctant to believe that the care providers they trusted could actually commit physical abuse against the elderly relative in their care. However, it is important to get a team of experienced nursing home abuse lawyers involved as soon as possible if you suspect abuse, to retain evidence and get your case started. If you are seeing signs of abuse in your elderly relative who is in the nursing home — signs like bruises, welts or open sores — do not wait another minute.

Fernandez & Lauby LLP provides experienced counsel and litigation services to families affected by nursing home abuse. If you have been a victim, or if you suspect that someone you love is being physically abused by nursing home, assisted living facility or home health care staff, contact us for a free initial consultation. Our Riverside elderly physical abuse lawyers will take the time to learn your story and help you understand your rights and options.

Types of Physical Abuse Against Elders

We have represented clients in a wide variety of elder abuse cases, including:

  • Overmedication as a means of restraint
  • Excessive use of physical restraints
  • Excessive force while administering physical restraints
  • Sexual abuse

These abuses take place in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and in home health care programs. When the professionals charged with caring for you or your elderly relative commit abuse, it is a betrayal of trust. We can fight for your rights, your dignity and the compensation you deserve for the injustice you have experienced.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
