Care home claims
There are many people who need assistance with their day to day lives, whether it’s because of old age, disability, or just needing some extra help with certain tasks. For some, this assistance is provided at home and for others, they will move into a care home. There, they can be looked after and get the 24/7 care that they need.
A care home should be a place of trust. If you are paying fees for a service, and entrusting that service with a family member, you should rightly expect a certain level of service and that the person in the care home will receive a good quality of life. Anything less is unacceptable. Unfortunately, we see many cases where that level of service has fallen so far below what it should be, that it is deemed negligent. The result is often that the resident feels sad, depressed and in many cases, suffers physically as a result.
How can we help?
At Patient Claim Line, we hear from many people who are concerned that a loved one residing in a care home is being mistreated, and that the standard of care expected (and paid for) is not being achieved. We can quickly advise you as to whether or not the care home has been negligent and if so, we can pursue a care home claim on the resident’s behalf. If they are unable to pursue the claim themselves for whatever reason (someone has power of attorney or they lack mental capacity etc), we can happily set things up so we can deal with you or any close friend or family member that usually deals with their affairs.
