Elder Abuse and Personal Injury

If you have a situation an elderly loved one is being neglected, bedsores, fell, etc — or have a question about wrongful death. We handle all types of abuse and injury on elders.


How we help

We take on the tough and complex will, trust and probate cases. When mother has passed on and the family is fighting over her will or trust. When grandpa needs help with his finances (Conservatorship, Financial Power of Attorney) or his health care decisions and living conditions (Guardianship, Medical Power of Attorney), we can help. We look for solutions, and moving the matter ahead. But we are not afraid to take on the tough fight. We are persistent, diligent, and brilliant.

  • Matters are mediated and settled if possible.   —  Litigated as necessary.
  • We are experienced at defending and advocating in Court.
  • Costs conscious representation — always keeping you in mind — foremost.

“Discourage litigation.  Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can.  Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loser — in fees, expenses and waste of time.  As a peacemaker, the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man.”

–Abraham Lincoln (1850)

Our Personal Injury Services

a law book with a gavel - elder lawAt The Meyer Elder Law Firm, attorney Rhett Meyer has over 27 years of experience handling the toughest of personal injury cases. In his career, he has handled cases involving the following accident injuries:

  • Nursing Home and Assisted Living Litigation
  • Neglect
  • Personal Injury Cases arising from situations of:
    • bedsores, falls, choking, etc.
  • Wrongful Death

A well crafted personal injury case is based on close examination of facts. We frequently work with outside resources such as accident reconstructionists and engineers to add credibility to our cases. We explore a variety of options as we work to maximize our services to our clients.

A personal injury can have emotional as well as financial costs. Aside from the trauma of an injury, victims are often left with large medical bills and rehabilitative costs. In crafting a case, not only do we account for current medical expenses but also the projected future expenses, loss of income and lost earning potential. Recovering maximum compensation for injured clients is our goal.


Rhett is actively helping us recover mother’s retirement money. She has the beginning of dementia  and can’t speak for herself and was taken advantage of. Rhett is an excellent advocate for the elderly.
