According to the Care Quality Commission it was reported that of the last 783 inspections 94 care homes were considered inadequate.
At Curtis Law Solicitors, we provide expert Clinical and Medical Negligence Solicitors in representing those who have suffered whilst in Care or in a Nursing Home.
When a member of your family or a friend is placed in Care or in a Nursing Home, we expect them to be well looked after and cared for.
Sadly, and all too often, there have been many cases where these vulnerable patients have suffered greatly whilst under care.
If you or your family member have experienced negligence whilst in Care or in a Nursing Home you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Care homes offer accommodation and personal care for people who may not be able to live independently. Some homes also offer care from qualified nurses or specialise in caring for particular groups such as younger adults with learning disabilities.
Care home places can be funded publicly but many people pay for their own care. If funded privately this may mean that the home also has contractual duties to the resident.
Many residents have bespoke or specialist requirements such as assistance with dementia or mobility.
On a number of occasion, residents do not get the care or support that they require in care homes meaning that avoidable accidents and injuries do occur.
At Curtis Law Solicitors, our Clinical and Medical Negligence Solicitors are currently instructed in the following types of cases:
- Fractured hip due to fall in care home
- Bed sores due to failure to turn and manage incontinent residents
- Mismanaged diabetic ulcers causing greater complication.
Should the dignity of a resident be affected or injury be caused, to a resident, due to neglect in a care home it is important than advice is obtained from a specialist medical solicitor.
