Care Home Claims
When we make the difficult decisions to put a loved one into a care home, we entrust them to the professionals and expect a high level of care.
Sometimes the high level of care we expect is not always given and this can sometimes lead to injuries happening that could’ve been prevented.
It has been found that some care homes lack the number of staff required to give the level of care required for the vulnerable people they look after. In addition, the number of supervising staff has also been found to less than adequate in some care homes.
We may be able to help you claim for:
- Injuries caused by an unsafe environment
- Injuries caused by poor preparation of food
- Medication errors
- Pressure sores
- Emotional or mental injuries caused by neglect or abuse
Patients in care homes are at a higher risk of falling, and elderly people are more vulnerable to serious injuries following a fall. Falls can occur and they may be a result of negligence.
In addition to this their medication is handled by the staff that work in the care home and mistakes can be made. Because the person in the home is elderly or vulnerable, they may not realise that a mistake is being made with their medication and suffer serious harm as a result.
How can we help?
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.
Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.
Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
