Serving Those Who Have Been Harmed By Elder Abuse Or Nursing Home Neglect

Abuse of elders both physically and financially is increasing as the senior citizen population continues to grow. Millions of older persons live in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Many nursing homes cut corners and employ inadequately trained and unqualified employees. Often a mentally deranged person is housed with senior citizens in a nursing home, resulting in violent attacks, rape and serious injuries. Senior citizens are vulnerable to physical injuries, inadequate medical treatment and financial abuse.

The lawyers at Van Blois Law are experienced in all types of personal injury and medical malpractice cases. We can recognize and prove when there are injuries due to the negligence of health care providers. We have experience in cases where senior citizens have lost income and property due to undue influence. We are experienced in cases involving Alzheimer's disease, dementia and incompetence.
