Vulnerable Adult Lawsuits
Arizona's Vulnerable Adult laws permit a vulnerable adult, or someone
acting on their behalf, to bring a suit against a person, company, or
institution that is taking advantage of the vulnerable adult.
Vulnerable adults can be abused physically, mentally, emotionally, and
financially. A person can also be considered a vulnerable adult without
being incapacitated within the meaning of the law (i.e. someone who requires
a Guardian). However, abuse of a vulnerable adult can subject the abusing
party to civil and criminal liability.
If you suspect that yourself or someone you know is a vulnerable adult
and has been abused, please contact an attorney immediately. No one should
have to live with that type of ongoing mistreatment. An attorney can help.
