Compensation for social abuse in a care home

When a person is no longer able to look after themselves, or is in need of additional help, a care home is usually the best place that they can go to receive the right type of attention and treatment that they need for their illness. In most situations care homes will provide the appropriate attention for any individual who needs it, and they can be a great place for people who do require this type of help to go, but unfortunately this is not always the case.

If you find that you have been the victim of social abuse while staying in a care home, then you could consider a compensation claim to recoup any financial losses or medical health issues that you have sustained as a result of your abuse.

Where might you have been the victim of social abuse in a care home?

Social abuse in a care home can happen in a number of different ways. Some common situations where you may consider making a compensation claim include:

·         Claims for malnutrition or a lack of appropriate food

·         Claims for physical abuse in a care home

·         Claims for psychological abuse in a care home

·         Claims for neglect and lack of care

·         Claims for poor living conditions and lack of hygiene.

Who might have been responsible for your abuse?

If you have been a victim in this situation then there are a number of people who you may consider making a compensation claim against, but in general if you are the victim in a care home then you will be looking to make a claim against care home workers. By law it is their responsibility to ensure that you receive the right amount of care while under their care and if you don’t, you may consider a compensation claim.
