Have You Or A Loved One Been Personally Injured or Abused?

Here are a few possible tips on some warning signs that may indicate abuse.

  • Physical Abuse.

    Does your loved one or someone you know have slap marks, unexplained bruises, burns, pressure sores or blisters. Do they flinch when they are touched?

  • Emotional Abuse.

    Is someone being yelled at, bullied or tormented? Has someone discussed their concerns with you? Are they showing unusual behavior? Are they withdrawing from normal activities? Do they seem scared or nervous around certain people that can not be explained?

  • Sexual Abuse.

    Are they showing bruises around the breasts or genital area? Do they show fear around someone that can not be explained?

  • Financial Abuse.

    Is there a sudden change in finances? Are the accounts, wills and trust being altered in some way? Is there a loss of property that can not be explained?

  • Neglect.

    Unexplained pressure ulcers, malnutrition or dehydration. Are they dirty or is there a lack of medical care? Are they being taken care of the way you expected?
