The emotional side of elder abuse can be devastating for the survivors. After the abuse has happened friends and family of the victim are known to blame themselves for not seeing the signs of the abuse. Frequently, the abuser has become very adept at hiding that abuse and there is no way the family or friends could have known what was going on or for how long. This emotional reaction, while very understandable, may lead to the abuse being so difficult to deal with that some refuse to take the next step and put a stop to future abuse. Here is how we can help…

We understand and care deeply about what happened to the victim and we know when those responsible aren’t held accountable the abuse will likely happen again. Elder abuse is seldom a single event. There are caregivers who routinely abuse and some facilities who simply look the other way when the signs of abuse are apparent. Many of the details of the abuse go beyond what friends and family can handle learning about. We will talk about what level of information you want to know when we meet. There is nothing to be gained by creating more sadness surrounding the situation you have found yourself in and we honor that.

What you will need to know is we must learn what happened, how it happened and get to the bottom of who is responsible. We work to learn those details because they matter. We work to discover information about the length of the abuse, the extent of the abuse, was there one or more caregivers responsible, did the facility know or should they have known about the abuse and what if any measures were taken to stop the abuse. Even in the best case you may need to understand the full extent the full details and we will do our best to prepare you for that time. Rest assured that we will be fully aware of these details as the investigation progresses and work on the behalf of your loved one to bring those responsible to justice.      

 We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others.  At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $157,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when insurance companies fail to offer full compensation. We help with serious injuries that require serious representation. We are the Law Offices of Guenard & Bozarth, LLP. Our attorneys have more than 60 years of experience specializing in only representing injured people..

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
