Nursing Homes can often be a lifeline to many families who are simply not able to care for their loved ones by themselves. The majority of care homes provide outstanding care and ensure that your loved ones are fed, washed and administered with their necessary medical treatments.
However, sometimes whether it is through a basic lack of care or a sinister intent to harm, Nursing Home staff can cause serious injury to their residents. The slightest injury which could simply be shaken off by someone in their younger years can have serious consequences for someone in their more senior years.
What type of claims can arise from poor care at Nursing Homes?
Criminal Injuries claims
Failing to prevent pressure sores
Slips, Trips and Falls claims
Claiming compensation can be an important part of helping your loved one recover from their injuries. By securing compensation for the suffering caused by a nursing home you can put the money to good use.
Compensation can allow you to:
Obtain private medical care to prevent delay of treatment
Nursing care at home
Re-locating to a new nursing home
Money for any ongoing treatment needed as a result of the injuries sustained
