Do Elder Abuse Cases Settle, or Do You Find Them Frequently Going to Trial?

About 99% of all civil actions settle, and elder neglect or elder abuse cases are not outside of the norm. However, when we take the case, we are ready to go the distance because we know the offender and their insurer will likely offer a settlement lower than is fair to the victim.

No matter what the scenario is, we always prepare for trial because we know if they think we are not prepared for trial, they are not going to make a fair and reasonable settlement offer.

As experienced elder abuse attorneys, we are always ready to take your case to trial.

Q: How soon after I suspect elder abuse should I talk to a lawyer?

As soon as you suspect it. The main reason you should speak to a lawyer is to prevent it from happening in the future. The sooner you talk to an attorney, the more likely the abuse or neglect will stop.
