An Older Than Average Population
The median age of Lake Oswego residents is 45.8 years, higher than the Oregon state median of 36.8 years old. As the population of Lake Oswego continues to age, more elderly residents are admitted at nursing care homes.
Elderly people are vulnerable to physical, emotional and financial abuse. Common types of abuse include:
- Abandonment by persons responsible for their care
- Dehydration and malnourishment
- Failing to treat a medical condition
- Inflicting physical pain
- Over medication
- Financial abuse or exploiting the financial resources of the elderly
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse through verbal assaults and threats
Abuse may often be undetected until serious injury or damage has set in. If your loved one is the victim of elderly abuse, they may be entitled to compensation under Oregon laws.
In Oregon, Chapter 124 of the Oregon Revised Statutes allows elderly persons to file an action against persons who inflict or cause physical or financial abuse. If proven in court, your loved one may be awarded damages for monetary and non-monetary injuries, attorney’s fees and the service costs of a conservator or guardian who may be appointed as a result of the litigation.
