A Missouri Senator is hoping to expand the laws that protect the elderly from abuse situations. The new law will help to protect the elderly from being exploited financially.
The law will make it a crime for someone who is in charge of an elderly person’s financial situation to take advantage of them because of their elderly mental state.
The Republican Senator stated that elderly need more protection than what is currently given to them. The law also states that if a person steals money that was allotted to pay a nursing home, the court can order the person in charge of the money to pay the nursing.
Elderly people need protection from the law because they are at risk of exploitation, you need representation on your side at this time that are committed to helping fight for justice. Contact the St. Louis elderly abuse lawyers of the Finney Law Firm by calling 314-646-0300.
