Finding an injury claim lawyer in Strathdon at Accident Advice Helpline

Elderly relatives who are committed to care homes are often very vulnerable. Unfortunately, some elderly care homes do not fulfil their duty of care to their residents, and systematic abuse is something that hits the headlines from time to time.

Report in the Daily Express

In a report published in the Daily Express in December 2013, it was estimated that dehydration was linked to 1,158 deaths in the period from 2003 to 2012. But that’s not all — the following statistics for the same time period make shocking reading:

  • Deaths due to starvation and malnutrition: 318; and
  • Deaths related to bed sores: 2,815.

Of course, these figures only relate to deaths. The number of elderly people who are maltreated and abused but do not die will be substantially more. The general secretary of the National Pensioners Convention, Dot Gibson, stated that the public would be outraged if animals were treated in the same way, saying that we need to show similar compassion when it comes to the care of our elderly loved ones.

Any injury lawyer in Strathdon you use will need proof

If an elderly relative or loved one of yours has been subject to mistreatment, for which you can provide the necessary proof, then Accident Advice Helpline can provide you with the services of a specialist injury claim lawyer in Strathdon or elsewhere in Scotland who can help you to raise a claim for compensation.

Statute of limitations

Ordinarily, there is a three-year window in which the majority of personal injury claims must be made. If your claim is linked to any criminal proceedings, however, then this is reduced down to two years, although in extenuating circumstances these periods can sometimes be extended.
