Are you looking for solicitors in Gretna Green following an accident? Did your accident happen within the last three years and was it someone else’s fault? If so, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to make your claim. Even if you are claiming on behalf of a relative, we can help.
Claiming for a relative
If you have any relatives who have trouble communicating in some sort of care-giving institution, you would be wise to at least consider how they’re being treated. It doesn’t matter how much their care costs, there will be a chance that they may not be receiving the best care available from the care workers who attend to their needs. In a very small minority of cases, there could even be a possibility that your relative is being abused.
As such, if you have a child with special needs in respite care, and elderly relative in a care home or somebody close to you with a brain injury in a clinical environment, be alert to potential signs that things might not all be well.
Unfortunately, the fact that few qualifications are required to become a care worker coupled with the low wages the profession pays means that it does not always attract the best people. If you can gather proof that your relative or loved one has been mistreated or abused by a care worker who was supposed to be looking after them, there will be chance that you might well be able to secure the services of a top-class no-win, no-fee solicitors in Gretna Green with a view to taking some form of personal injury action on their behalf. Accident Advice Helpline works in partnership with experienced solicitors across the country.
Care home mistreatment and solicitors in Gretna Green
In March 2014, two care home workers a appeared in Greater Manchester court charged with severely mistreating a man with brain injuries while they changed his bedding. The relatives of the man set up covert surveillance cameras in his room as they suspected something wasn’t quite right.
When they reviewed the footage, they found that the two workers had slapped, jabbed and verbally abused the man. A case such as this would, as this one did, typically attract criminal charges. But if somebody close to you were to suffer similar treatment, solicitors in Gretna Green could help you to make a claim.
As well as abuse, you might also be able to take action against a care provider if your loved one were to be mistreated through neglect. If your relative had mobility problems and the staff at the care home she lived in failed to move and wash her or change her bed clothes regularly, she could develop nasty sores.
