YOUR RIGHTS IN ELDER ABUSE
Senior citizens have the right to be treated with basic respect, have their needs met, and to be free from emotional or physical harm from caregivers. Many nursing homes and assisted living facilities also have more comprehensive lists of resident’s rights and provide certain guarantees to seniors living in their facilities.
Unfortunately, caregiver frustration, understaffed nursing homes and low wages in the elder care field make seniors vulnerable to receiving substandard care. When this occurs, the victim of elder abuse can obtain full compensation for any injuries or harm to the senior.
OBTAINING COMPENSATION FOR ELDER ABUSE
Monetary damages in elder abuse cases should cover medical treatment, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress. Depending on the circumstances, you may also receive punitive damages. If the elder abuse has a deadly effect, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim.
To obtain compensation from a nursing home, caregiver or other responsible party, victims or their family members must prove that abuse occurred and caused harm.
COMMON TYPES OF ELDER ABUSE
A variety of different types of elder abuse may affect a senior citizen including:
- Physical abuse: Hitting, pushing, kicking, burning, and related behaviors
- Isolation: Preventing elderly dependent from receiving calls, mail, or visitors
- Emotional abuse: Insulting language, a failure to respond to the senior’s needs
- Neglect: Bedsores, malnutrition and dehydration, weight loss, dehydration
- Sexual abuse
- Chemical restraint: Improper use of antipsychotics
- Financial Abuse/Fraud
Abuse and neglect can lead to emotional and other serious and potentially fatal damage to vulnerable seniors.
You should speak with a Adamsville elder abuse lawyer as soon as possible. If you have been the victim of abuse or if you suspect that abuse is happening to one of your family members.

Adamsville, Rhode Island is a historic village in Little Compton, Rhode Island. It was first settled in 1675 around the time of King Philip’s War and was named after the second president of the United States, John Adams.
Grays General Store in Adamsville was built in 1788. It was allegedly the oldest operating general store in the United States until it temporarily closed in 2012, and was home to the town’s first post office, founded in 1804. The store was most recently operated by Grayton Waite, a sixth-generation shop keeper, along with his son Jonah Waite. The store was reopened in 2013.

Get The Attention & Care You Deserve
After learning about elder abuse of a family member, you need personalized attention to your case.
Many attorneys often take on more than they can handle. Either because their cases are too complex or they take on too many cases. This makes it impossible for the clients to receive the attention they deserve.
An attorney who provides “assembly line” representation should not represent you. We believe that no two cases are the same. We take the time to learn the unique circumstances of your case and your injuries. By doing this, we are better prepared to negotiate on your behalf and maximize your compensation.
You should also not be represented by an attorney who simply passes you off to an inexperienced associate after signing you up.
We know that Adamsville has many elder abuse & neglect attorneys to choose from. By hiring us, you will have an experienced advocate dedicated to your success every step of the way.
Under Rhode Island law, you have the right to recover full compensation for all personal injuries. We will put our decades of experience to work for you so that you get the money you deserve.
Aggressive Elder Abuse Representation
Numerous years of combined experience handling specialized cases just like yours.
Additionally, we are well-known throughout all Adamsville courthouses. We have the experience and the reputation you want when hiring an attorney. More importantly, the nursing homes, insurance companies, etc., know that we are respected in the legal community. This gives you a distinct advantage when negotiating with them.
Many cases settle out of court. Therefore, you need an effective negotiator on your side. Our attorneys have spent several years defending insurance companies against
elder abuse claims. We understand how they think and the games they play to deny you compensation. This gives you the upper hand during the negotiation process.
To recover from an elder abuse situation, you must prove the defendant was responsible for your harm. We have a strong network of investigators and professionals to help build your case and get you the proper compensation. Proving damages can be complicated, but our lawyers have a proven track record of excellent results.
Get the Compensation You Deserve After Being Injured
Quick but low settlements
After an abuse, the insurance company will usually want to resolve the matter quickly. They know you might need money right away, so they offer a low settlement in the hope that you’ll accept.
Before accepting any settlement offer, remember that they are not your friend. The insurance company has one goal in mind: settle the matter quickly and cheaply, regardless of your pain and suffering.
What is fair compensation?
The problem is that often times after a serious accident, it’s hard to know how much money you will need to be fairly compensated for your loss.
Our experienced legal team knows that you might need long-term care, and will fight to make sure you get enough money to compensate you for your future losses.
