Our elderly and dependent adult population are vulnerable and California law recognizes that they need special protection. Brandi Lawyers are committed to helping the victims of abuse. We understand the legal, emotional and medical consequences an injury can have on an elder or dependent adult.
Nursing homes and other facilities are often underfunded, which may lead to underqualified employees and too few staff members to take care of their residents. Improper staffing often leads to neglect or opportunities for abuse.
We help families hold negligent parties accountable for the emotional harm, physical injuries, financial damage, and even deaths they have caused.
