What is Care Home Negligence?

Care home negligence is when a care home fails to provide a standard of care that meets the basic needs and expectations of the residents, resulting in harm or injury to the residents. This can include falls or pressure sores.

If you or a loved one lives in a care home and you feel that they have suffered an injury because they are not being looked after correctly, are being mistreated or not getting the medical care they need.

Alternatively you may know someone, a friend or family member, currently residing in a care home and you feel that they are neglected you may be able to claim compensation.
