If a loved one or family member lives in a care home, you should be confident they’re being looked after properly – with the kindness and respect they deserve. And in most cases, this will be true.
But unfortunately, there are times when such homes fall short of the mark. Perhaps due to bad practices? Inadequate policies? Poorly trained staff? Whatever the reason, it isn’t acceptable. And if someone you know has suffered due to hospice or care home neglect, it’s important to act.
Here at Injury Lawyers Direct, we can assist in putting together a care home negligence claim – guiding you step-by-step through the process and maximising your chances of success. To find out more, please feel free to call us on 0800 110 5888.
A simple yet beneficial claims process
Care home neglect can have a serious impact on the health of an older person – both physically and emotionally. The consequences can often be devastating, with victims suffering serious injuries and health complications, which may have a profound and long-lasting effect on their lives.
At this distressing time, we appreciate that your priority is your loved one, and making a care home neglect claim may seem like an unnecessary distraction. But it’s important to seek justice.
Aside from helping to pay for any required treatments, claiming for care home negligence compensation will highlight concerning health and safety issues – helping to improve standards in nursing homes and hospices and, hopefully, preventing the same thing from happening again. And, with the help of our solicitors, it doesn’t have to be a time-consuming or stressful process.
You can rely on us to act on your behalf. We’ll take care of everything, working hard in the background to ensure your loved one is recompensed fairly for the mistreatment they’ve endured – whilst also supporting their rehabilitation. And we’ll complete all work on a completely ‘no win no fee’ basis.
‘No win no fee’ care home negligence claims
Care home residents are often very vulnerable and reliant on those around them. They may need assistance with all aspects of day-to-day life. And that’s why care home neglect and residential abuse can take many different forms – including physical, psychological, sexual, discriminatory or even financial. Some of the most common examples include:
- trips and falls
- handling errors
- medication errors
- poor hygiene
- sub-standard living conditions
- poor access to routine healthcare
- pressure sores
- physical abuse
- bullying and emotional abuse
- sexual abuse
But please don’t worry if your specific experience of care home negligence isn’t listed here.
Care homes have a duty to ensure residents are safe, comfortable and cared for properly. If they haven’t upheld that duty – and either you or someone you love has been harmed as a result – you should be eligible to make a care home negligence claim. And it’s likely we’ll be able to help.
Not only do we have an in-house team of specialist care home negligence solicitors, we have access to a network of barristers, insurers and medical experts. And whatever your circumstances, we can apply our knowledge – and will do everything we can to achieve a satisfactory outcome for your family.
