AAH – the specialist no win no fee Englishcombe care home injury claim solicitors
If you are looking for a good no win no fee Englishcombe accident injury claim lawyer to launch a personal injury claim for a loved one injured at a care home, we here at Accident Advice Helpline would be pleased to hear from you.
Abuse in care homes for the elderly
The fact of the matter is that our UK population is ageing. A survey carried out by Laing and Buisson in 2007 reported that there are more than 420,000 elderly people living in nursery homes. Unfortunately, many are becoming the victims of nursing home abuse, whether that abuse takes the form of elderly people being allowed to suffer from pressure sores, from physical abuse, or from malnutrition.
The leading no win no fee Englishcombe injury claim lawyers who will help you to right a wrong
It’s never an easy decision to make to put a parent or elderly relative into a nursing home. But, if you believe it is in their best interests, then you trust that the staff of the nursing home you choose to use, will care for, and protect your loved one. If you subsequently find out that this trust that you bestow upon the staff of the care home has been violated, you will be well within your rights to insist on compensation, and AAH, as one of the nation’s leading no win no fee Englishcombe injury claim solicitors will be glad to help.
The types of abuse elderly people are exposed to
The sorts of injuries to elderly people that we have handled claims for include things like:
- Mental and physical abuse
- Bed sores
- Medication abuse
In one recent case, eight elderly people died from hypothermia because the nursing home had switched off the heating. It’s unbelievable and frightening.
The window of opportunity to launch a claim
Gathering proof is obviously an important part of any personal injury claim, and is not always easy to do when it comes to someone being in a remote care, but it is an essential prerequisite to launching any action or claim for compensation. In most instances, there is a 3-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. If however the injury comes under the badge of “a criminal injury”, the statute of limitations is reduced from 3 years down to 2 years.
30 seconds well spent
