Elder Law

Los Angeles Attorney Committed to Protecting the Elderly

Experienced California lawyer represents the elderly and demands accountability for nursing home abuse and negligence

The Law Office of Lowell Steiger, located in Sherman Oaks, California, has been protecting the rights of the elderly and challenging negligent nursing home practices for 20 years. Elder abuse can take many forms and is not always recognized as abuse by the victim when it occurs, often due to a trusted relationship with the perpetrator. It can have serious negative consequences for the mental and financial health of the elderly victim. Similarly, negligent nursing home practices can result in ongoing physical and emotional pain, and even death if it goes unchecked. I stand up for the rights of the elderly and fight for them.

Compassionate attorney works one-on-one with clients to address elder abuse and seek justice

In California, elder abuse is the abuse of a person 65 years of age or older. Abuse can be physical, financial or involve any other behavior that causes pain or mental suffering. Abuse also encompasses depriving the elderly person of things or services that they need to avoid physical harm or mental suffering. If you or a family member have been physically abused, defrauded or an individual is asserting financial or other control over you against your wishes, I can assist by utilizing the law and all the protections it affords by bringing a legal action against the abuser and helping you seek monetary compensation.

Dedicated attorney holds nursing homes accountable for negligent acts

When an act of negligence causes a nursing home resident harm, the nursing home can be held legally responsible in situations involving substandard medical treatment as well as general negligent acts which include, but are not limited to, physical neglect of a resident, failure to keep the facility free from hazards, negligent hiring of personnel or their supervision, failure to maintain or adhere to health and safety policies and failure to provide appropriate medical care. Nursing homes need to be trusted partners in the care of the elderly and, when they violate or breach that trust, they need to be held accountable. I have devoted my practice to obtaining compensation for victims, changing unsafe practices and working to eliminate the possibility of continued future harm to unsuspecting families.
