Some disabled and elderly people need a lot more daily assistance to make the most of their lives than others. In some cases the simple act of getting into and out of bed is virtually impossible unless extensive help is given. In this situation, a mobility hoist can help an individual live a better life.
In some cases, the individual may live in a care home or another managed setting, so they can receive the level of care they need on an hourly or daily basis. In other cases they may have home carers to visit them at specific times so they receive help when they most need it. In every case those using the hoisting equipment should be properly trained so they are able to operate the hoist safely and efficiently. This will help reduce the instances of a mobility hoist injury taking place.
While such injuries are rare, there are potential accidents that could happen if proper care and attention isn’t taken. If there has been a lack of training it is possible that a mobility hoist injury could occur – and this can be devastating for the person concerned.
Does your situation warrant a compensation claim?
This kind of injury can lead to serious consequences for the person who suffers it. It is always important to consult a professional injury advice lawyer if you have suffered an injury like this, because it could be determined that you can make a case for compensation. It is often upsetting and emotional to find yourself in this situation so if you can seek advice from an expert you will be able to see exactly where you stand legally. It is much better than worrying alone and wondering whether you could make any kind of claim for compensation.
