Financial exploitation is a common form of abuse of the elderly, especially among nursing home residents, who may not be closely monitored or cared for by nursing home staff. Unfortunately, financial abuse of older Americans has increased significantly in recent years.
There are a wide variety of different types of financial exploitation of nursing home residents, including the following:
One of the best ways to prevent financial exploitation of your loved one in a nursing home is to be involved as much as possible in the day-to-day details of the resident’s care. Continually monitoring the resident’s finances, communicating with him or her on a regular basis, if possible, and keeping an updated inventory of all of the resident’s possession are also good ways to avoid financial exploitation.
The nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers of Bonner & Vaughan have handled many cases involving the financial exploitation of nursing home residents, and we know just how devastating these types of cases can be. One of our goals is to ensure that nursing homes and other elderly care facilities meet reasonable standards in screening and hiring employees that provide care to residents. When a nursing home does not take the appropriate measures to protect their residents through standardized hiring practices, that nursing home may ultimately be responsible for any injuries that result. We are familiar with the investigation, assessment, and determination of potential claims on behalf of nursing home residents and their families, whether the negligence stems from staff members or the facility itself. Call Boller & Vaughan today and discover what we can do to help you through this difficult situation.

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
