Compensation for physical abuse in a care home
For most people there comes a time in life where they are no longer able to care for themselves, and as a result you could find that a care home is the right place to be. Care homes generally provide fully skilled professionals who are able to look after patients and ensure that they are cared for throughout the duration of their stay – but unfortunately these staff members can be negligent and you can be left with injuries as a result.
If you find that you have been the victim of physical abuse in a care home then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.
IN WHICH SITUATIONS COULD A COMPENSATION CLAIM BE MADE?
You could claim for compensation as the victim of physical abuse in a number of different situations, some common examples of where you could claim include:
- Claims for physical abuse by a staff member
- Claims against a physical attack from a staff member
- Claims for being hit or violently attacked
- Claims for abuse from a fellow resident
- Claims for abuse from a visitor
WHO COULD HAVE BEEN THE CAUSE OF PHYSICAL ABUSE HERE?
If you have sustained physical abuse in a care home then you can look to make a compensation claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. In general this can include carers who are responsible for looking after you and ensuring that you aren’t subjected to any physical harm, as well as other residents at the care home who might also have been responsible for this type of accident.
