Whiplash injury in County Durham


As people age, often comes the question of options for care of the elderly. This can often be an emotional time for everyone concerned, both in considering what level of care is required, as well as realistic possibilities.

If an older person requires the sort of round-the-clock treatment that you are in no position to provide, it can sometimes be for the best that they live in a care home.

Most care homes do a very good job of taking care of their residents, but there are those that can fall short. Often, problems can arise as a result of issues with staff. This could obviously have devastating consequences for an elderly person.

If care home workers were to move an older person without the attention the task required, they could very well inflict some form of whiplash injury in County Durham as a consequence.

If you have evidence that this has happened to a relative of yours who lives in a care home, you might be able to retain the services of a top 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitor with a view to taking some form of personal injury action against the care home in question.

Care homes and a whiplash injury in County Durham

You may even have witnessed care home workers inflicting a whiplash injury in County Durham on an elderly relative first hand during a visit. If a pair of workers were not paying attention to moving an older person from their bed to a chair, their head could jolt, causing damage to the soft tissue in her neck.

This is precisely how a whiplash injury in County Durham could come about. If your relative were to start complaining of aches and pains in her neck after something like this happened, there would be a good chance that they may have suffered exactly this type of injury.
