Often elderly and infirm people are seen as “lambs to be slaughtered” by foxes in the securities business. Although they might not have been aware of the abuse, or are not now able to testify, their family or heirs can bring such claims on their behalf. Again, statutes of limitations are a factor to consider. Your best course of action is to contact a reputable, experienced securities arbitration attorney who can help determine whether a valid claim should be filed. If you believe your loved one was the victim of negligence or securities fraud, please contact me for a consultation.
I have learned that a family member who is now in a nursing home or who is deceased lost money in investments. Can I do anything about it?
