5 Signs for Identifying Nursing Home Elder Abuse in Sacramento & Folsom CA

Elder abuse is any type of mistreatment that leads to the harming or death of an elder person. There are reportedly over two million elder abuse cases annually which include: neglect, sexual abuse, exploitation, emotional and physical abuse. With over 35 million individuals in the US that are age 65 or greater it is important to be able to catch the signs of elder abuse early before harm is done. 

As our population gets older more and more people are relying on nursing home care. Tragically nursing homes are short-staffed which is leading toward more elder abuse in the Sacramento and Folsom, CA areas. Our Elder Abuse Attorneys have included five signs that you can look for if someone you love is the victim of abuse:

  • Unexplained injuries that can not be accounted for.
  • Simple needs like food and cleanliness are not being met.
  • The Elder’s money or possessions are missing.
  • Nursing home staff have conflicts or fights with the patient.
  • Your beloved elder has a change in attitude or experiences depression.

We should always be looking out for these signs of elder abuse and quick to follow up looking into any circumstance you feel could be abuse. The Sacramento and Folsom Elder Abuse Attorneys at the Tiemann Law Firm want you to know that they are there to help you if you need to fight for the rights of your loved ones.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
