Get Expert Legal Help for your Care Home Claims

When you or your vulnerable loved ones are placed in a care home, there is a standard of care which is required which provides for a safe environment. Unfortunately, in some care homes, the standard of care falls well below the required standard and this can lead to a devastating impact.

Different scenarios can arise which leads to inadequate care and these may be as follows;

Injury/illness – an injury can occur in care homes where the patient has been left on a bed for a long period of time or not been medically cared for correctly. For a vulnerable person, injuries can take longer to heal therefore this can have much more of a serious impact on them as an individual

Medical errors – in some situations, a vulnerable person may already have an underlying health condition which makes the early detection of a problem paramount. The care home could have been negligent if they failed to administer the correct medication, failed to keep a record of the patient’s condition, failed to give adequate instructions and/or failed to provide the necessary environment for the individual.

Neglect – You may have heard of some scenarios in which care home staff have neglected a patient. Unfortunately, these situations are occurring more often and you or a loved one may be entitled to compensation. Situations, where there has been neglect, can include not being provided with the appropriate mobility aids, not being properly supervised and /or being cared for carelessly.

Each case is different and any compensation is based on the severity of the injury and the impact it has had on your life. You may be able to claim other losses such as loss of earnings, care, treatment and/or house adaptations.
