The elderly are often vulnerable to fraud or theft, and financial abuse often occurs when the opportunity is presented to an in home caregiver, nursing home personnel, insurance and annuity salespeople, lawyers, accountants and even physicians. People with fiduciary responsibilities, such as trustees or holders of powers of attorney are also in an easy position to defraud and make abusive decisions.

At McTernan, Stender & Weingus, we help clients and their families take a stand. If you suspect any type of financial abuse, we can evaluate your claim and take action if needed. If we accept your case, we will conduct a thorough investigation and, working with financial experts, will seek to maximize your compensation in court. We have the resources to handle all types of financial abuse claims, including:

  • Loss of valuable personal belongings in a nursing home or assisted living facility
  • Emptying of bank accounts
  • Fraud in the selling of annuities
  • Forgery of person's signature on checks
  • Changing title on real estate, bank accounts, cars and other property
  • Changing the will to benefit a caregiver.
