Southern California is growing older. As the Baby Boomer generation continues to grow, so does the number of senior citizens living in Los Angeles. Many now reside in nursing homes throughout the area. Although many senior care facilities are filled with highly-trained staff members, elder abuse has become an increasing problem. If you have a parent, grandparent or loved-one who has been the victim of nursing home abuse, it is vital to seek representation from an experienced and knowledgeable legal professional with an extensive track record of protecting the rights of elder abuse victims. Over the years, the Los Angeles nursing home abuse attorneys at Kristensen LLP have utilized a personable and comprehensive approach to help victims of elder abuse recover the maximum compensation to address their medical expenses, damages along with their pain and suffering.

When placing a parent or grandparent in a senior care facility, we also place our trust in their professional caregivers to treat our loved ones with the respect and dignity they deserve.
