Care Home Abuse Claims
Miss D. Powell
Thank you so much, Andrew, you were not just my solicitor, but also my friend who listened and always...
The standard of care in many of our social and private care facilities is unacceptable.
Care home negligence can span a wide range of different acts including:
- Injuries from handling errors
- Medication and prescription errors
- Slips, trips and falls
- Pressure sores
- Insufficient time to eat
Often staff are simply trying to cater to the considerable needs of too many patients or residents at the same time, but it is the most vulnerable who can pay the price because of this.
If you've witnessed poor standards of care in a nursing home, call us confidentially today to see how we can help on 0161 446 1122. You may be entitled to compensation.
Or we can call you back at a time of your choice

How to report nursing home abuse
If you are not satisfied with the care an elderly relative is receiving - or a younger vulnerable individual who is receiving nursing home care, for that matter - don't be afraid to take action.
Just because the individual is an adult, it does not mean they are not entitled to receive a high standard of care.
If a child was dehydrated or injured at school or nursery, you would almost certainly take action, so be prepared to fight for the best care for vulnerable adults and elderly individuals too.
The first step is to get free advice from an experienced solicitor. Call us today on 0161 446 1122
Try to compile evidence of neglect or abuse so you can show that you have good reason to complain, and make sure you get evidence of your complaint, for example by using email or sending a letter by recorded delivery.
Can I sue a nursing home for negligence?
Of course you can. Call our experts on 0161 446 1122 and let our lawyers talk you through the process.
If you think the standard of care provided by a nursing home is criminally poor and you have not received a satisfactory response to complaints, you might want to consider suing.
This is especially the case if you have suffered out-of-pocket expenses as a result of poor residential care services, including costs like:
• Paying for private medical treatment.
• Paying for alternative care arrangements.
• Loss of earnings while forced to care for your relative yourself.
• Other general costs e.g. help with housework, mobility aids in the home etc.
In general, if you have been affected financially by a poor standard of care, you may have cause to claim against the relevant care provider for negligence - you should not have to pay for their mistakes.
You may also be able to claim for serious ill health as a result of poor care for an elderly or vulnerable individual, especially if there are lasting consequences such as impaired mobility.
