If you or a loved one has suffered harm whilst in care our solicitors could help you claim compensation.

The decision to place a loved one in a care home is one most families dread. However, it must be devastating to find that they have since suffered abuse or neglect. Sadly this is an all too common experience. If your loved one has been harmed whilst in a care or nursing home we could help you make a claim for compensation.

The newspapers regularly publish articles about vulnerable people being abused or neglected in care and whilst most residents receive acceptable standards of care it’s clear that many do not.

It is fair to expect that your loved one is kept out of harms way, and yet this often not always the case. Sometimes there are tell-tale signs of abuse or neglect but it is not always clear.

It is alarming that the Care Quality Commission, the organisation tasked with ensuring patient safety has said it is now intervening at four care businesses a day.

We have successfully assisted with care home claims following:

  • Neglect
  • Abuse 
  • Development of a pressure sores
  • Falls and accidents
  • Unacceptable standards of care
  • Medication errors
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Unacceptable safety standards
  • Poor standards of hygiene

Contact us to discuss your situation in complete confidence and find out if we can help you claim on a no win no fee basis. We also offer inquest representation. Whilst we appreciate that a successful compensation settlement will not take away the suffering it can help with treatment, care costs, if appropriate and help to provide a sense of justice.
