Claims against negligent care home staff
For many people there comes a time in life where they are no longer able to look after themselves and in this situation it often eventuates that a care home is the right place to be. Right around the UK there are a numerous care homes which have been specifically designed to meet the needs of these individuals and ensure that they receive the care and attention that they need right across the board.
Unfortunately this care and attention is not always what they get, and accordingly if you find that you have been the victim in this way, you may consider a claim for compensation.

- Claims for negligence during care

IF I AM INJURED, AGAINST WHO MIGHT I LOOK TO CLAIM?
If you have been injured as a result of the negligence of a care home staff member, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation against them. In any care home environment it’s the responsibility of staff to ensure that patrons are cared for in an appropriate manner, and if you feel that they have failed to do this then you could be eligible to make a claim directly against them to recoup any damages that you have sustained.
