ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE ATTORNEY IN ANNAPOLIS, MD

Sitting as the capital of Maryland, as well as one of the longest standing towns in America, Annapolis holds its community values very close to the heart. With nearly 40,000 people currently living in Annapolis, 13% of that population are seniors. With this decently sized elderly community, there is also a need for nursing or assisted living homes to offer care for family’s loved ones that don’t have the resources to provide proper care. Unfortunately, some of these facilities can cause more harm than good to your loved one, whether it be physically, mentally, or financially. The Whitney Firm has experience representing the elderly and their families. We offer Free Case Evaluations, and attorney’s fees and case expenses are paid from only from compensation we recover for you. Here is what our clients have to say about us.

WHAT FALLS UNDER ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE?

While a situation that deals with elder financial abuse could be looked at on a case-by-case basis, there are currently laws set in place to help combat the unfortunate large variety of cases that are filed. In 2010, the federal Elder Justice Act was formed and enacted that strictly outlines elder financial abuse as “the fraudulent or otherwise illegal, unauthorized, or improper act… that used the resources of an elder to monetary or personal benefit, profit, or gain, or that results in depriving an elder the rightful access to, or use of, benefits, resources, belongings, or assets.” This law helps protect elders against criminals that try to scam or exploit the senior citizen by draining their financial assets. This risk becomes even larger if the elder person unfortunately suffers from a form of mental illness, typically either dementia or Alzheimer’s that can alter the decision making of said person.

WHO COMMITS ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE?

When you think of someone committing these kinds of crimes, strangers are probably on the top of this list. Unfortunately, 90% of elder financial abuse crimes are committed within a domestic setting from family members that will have better access to personal records than strangers. An abuse of trust between family members for financial gain can cause irreversible damage, so learning to find the warning signs early and keep your loved ones safe can save enormous financial and mental damage. These are some signs of elder financial abuse you can start to learn:

  • Disputes against future inheritance
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities employees taking charge of financial affairs
  • Out of the blue new “best friends”
  • Heavy interest in personal financial assets
  • Unexplained financial transactions
  • Previous heavy gambling or financial issues
  • Strange activity in their bank account
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities charging irregular fees
