Many elderly people live in care homes across the country, and in the overwhelming majority of instances, they are looked after to the highest of standards. The services provided by care homes are usually outstanding, and many people are happy their family members are in good homes that provide care, entertainment, and a good place to live. It is highly unlikely you would ever find yourself with the possibility to sue a care home for any reason.
However, since you are reading this, there is a chance you may have found yourself in a situation whereby this could be a possibility. If so, read on, because we have explored this topic a little for you. You can then decide whether you may wish to get in touch with us to learn more.
Why might you sue a care home?
If you have a relative staying in a care home and they have recently been injured there, you may wonder why the injury occurred. If you suspect negligence was to blame, you could be well placed to make a claim on behalf of your relative.
Negligence must be proven to have occurred for a claim to have a chance of being found in your favour. Thus, you can see how important it is to speak to someone who has already handled similar claims. They will know how to investigate the claim and how to identify whether there is evidence that supports your theory that someone else was to blame for any injuries suffered by your relative or loved one in the home.
