Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, or sexual harm inflicted upon an older adult, their financial exploitation, or neglect of their welfare by people who are directly responsible for their care. Elder abuse tends to take place where the senior lives: where their abusers are often adult children, other family members such as grandchildren, or a spouse or partner. Elder abuse can also occur in institutional settings, especially long-term care facilities. We have one of the first recorded verdicts in California where the elder abuse claim was not capped by MICRA:

Arustamyan v. BHC Alhambra (August 2018)
