When a nursing home employee or senior caregiver makes sexual comments or advances toward an elderly individual, this is inappropriate behavior that can justify legal action on behalf of the victim or their family. Sexual harassment is not acceptable under any circumstance, but in cases of elder harassment or sexual abuse, it is especially heinous because the victim frequently is unable to speak up, either through fear, embarrassment or due to diminished abilities.
If a loved one has become the victim of elder sexual harassment or abuse, it is extremely important that you learn what your legal rights and options for recourse are. It is possible that you may be entitled to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for damages for the emotional or physical trauma that has occurred. The best way to learn what steps to take in your particular situation is by speaking with a trusted California sexual abuse attorney about the details of the harassment that took place.
