East Middle Lane Rockville Maryland - Rockville, MD Elder Financial Abuse Lawyer

ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE ATTORNEY FOR ROCKVILLE, MD

Rockville serves as the county seat for Montgomery County as well as one of the largest communities within Maryland that isn’t a metropolitan area. Because of the size and local home feel that Rockville offers, there’s a decently sized senior community that looks to be on the decline as the younger generation starts to settle down and find new homes. This still requires proper living care facilities to be managed and operated for the elderly community if a family, unfortunately, can’t provide the needs that their loved one needs. Instead of always providing the proper care and service that these elderly people need, there’s a chance your loved one could be in danger of being financially abused by either a senior living facility or family member. 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.

WHO CAN COMMIT ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE?

The simple answer is that anyone who has direct communication with an elderly person can be a possible financial predator. With an astounding 90% of elder financial abuse crimes being committed by a family member within a domestic setting due to easy access to personal records and financial statements, it doesn’t hurt to learn warning signs of weird behavior between younger and elder family members. Taking the time to learn some of these warning signs can be crucial to saving yourself from very troublesome financial and emotional distress:

  • 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

WHAT CAN BE CLASSIFIED AS ELDER FINANCIAL ABUSE?

Thanks to the 2010 Elder Justice Act, there are guidelines set in place to help determine what elder financial abuse can be classified as. Instead of dealing with these crimes on a case-by-case basis, the Act has defined elder financial abuse as “the fraudulent or otherwise illegal, unauthorized, or improper act… that used the resources of an elder for 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.” The Act helps keep elders much safer against these criminals once they realize that they’re being financially abused by them due to the wide coverage this Act defines. Unfortunately, reaching this point can become much harder if the elderly person suffers from any mental illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia that can keep the person from making rational choices and decisions.
