Care home claims
Most common types of claim:
At some stage in their lives, many people need a little personal help. This help can be in the form of assistance to perform certain tasks, or just general living assistance and in this situation many people will be placed in a care home – an area where they can be looked after and receive the around–the–clock attention that they frequently need.
A care home is a service and the fees at many care homes are quite high, so you come to expect a level of service and a quality lifestyle. Unfortunately in some situations this isn’t the case and care home workers can be negligent towards residents. In turn, this can leave the residents feeling sad, depressed and even making them physically ill as a result.
