    Let our injury lawyers inThe Giddings help you

    Nobody relishes having to put an elderly relative into a care home, but when an older person no longer has the capacity to look after themselves, either down to physical or mental deterioration, there can often be little choice. Although it is without doubt better for people to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, there comes a time when round the clock care may be required, the type that cannot be provided by relatives, no matter how loving.

    Unfortunately, some care homes are not as well run as others, which can mean that residents of poorer ones may end up being injured in an accident that was not their fault. Then there’s the issue of the low pay that caring staff receive. It has been argued that some care home residents might not receive the best of services from staff who are paid little more than the minimum wage.

    If you have an elderly relative who has been injured in an accident that was not their fault or been mistreated by a member of staff in a care home, you may be able to use the services of injury lawyers in The Giddings to sue for compensation on their behalf.
