    Compensation for care home injury


    We are living for longer than ever before and the UK has more care homes today as a result. For the most part, these establishments offer an excellent solution to elderly care and accommodation. But on occasion you or your loved one may experience an accident or injury that shouldn’t have happened at all. These can come in all shapes and sizes and when there is clear evidence of negligence, it is possible to make a claim for financial compensation. A typical example of a care home injury could be a slip or trip on or over an unsafe surface. Perhaps the area was recently polished and as a result, the resident has fallen over and become injured. On the other end of the scale, physical abuse has been recorded in some care homes here in the UK. This is totally unacceptable and should it arise, a full investigation and the appropriate steps need to be carried out by the authorities. It has also been known that residents of care homes have become ill and the staff have either failed to notice this condition or misdiagnosed the illness. It is important to understand that any care home injury should be thoroughly investigated in each and every case.

    Have you received an injury in your care home?

    If you are currently a resident in a care home, or perhaps your loved one is, and you’ve received an injury that you suspect to be a result of negligence, why not call Accident Advice Helpline now? Your care home workers have a duty of care for all residents and day patients alike. When they fail to meet these requirements, injuries can and do occur. Whilst it may be true that potential accidents exist in any environment, some of these could be avoided altogether. If you feel that you have been the victim of any physical or mental abuse whilst residing in a care home, you should have the matter fully investigated by the appropriate governing bodies. This type of behaviour should not be tolerated and you may be able to claim financial compensation for the suffering that you have experienced.
