SAN DIEGO ELDER ABUSE ATTORNEY AND NURSING HOME NEGLECT LAWYER


Defending Against Elder Abuse & Neglect in San Diego


Welcome to The Law Offices of Young & Wallin, the Premiere Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Neglect Law Firm of San Diego, California.

If you or a loved one have been a victim of nursing home neglect or elder abuse in San Diego, California our experienced attorneys can provide you the legal help you need to seek justice and compensation.

There are over 1.7 million elderly nursing home residents in our country that are vulnerable to abuse and maltreatment. Nursing home elder abuse can include physical and sexual assault, neglect, inappropriate restraining, financial abuse, isolation, verbal threats, intimidation, wrongful death and adverse drug events.

Research studies published in the American Journal of Medicine last year suggests there are an estimated 1.9 million drug-related problems each year in nursing home facilities, including more than 86,000 fatal or life-threatening problems. Nearly half of these incidents are estimated to be preventable.

While California Elder Laws strive to protect nursing home residents from abuse and negligence, nursing home abuse and neglect occurs in alarming frequency and, more often than not, go unreported.

Elder nursing home residents have “explicit" rights. Attorneys Young & Wallin are dedicated to the upholding of those rights and to enforcing laws set forth to protect elder nursing home residents from maltreatment. We can provide proficient legal help to victims of elder abuse and nursing home neglect in Southern California, including San Diego and throughout the state of California. Our lawyers and attorneys also represent elder abuse and nursing home neglect cases out of state, in some instances.


If you suspect that an elder you care about is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you need to contact a San Diego nursing home abuse attorney or neglect lawyer. Contact us for a FREE CONSULTATION. We offer our clients the highest level of quality legal assistance and personal service.
