More about Employer & Public Liability Claims for the Care Sector

Our lawyers and investigation teams work collaboratively with our clients and fully consider all aspects of a claim. We are fully aware that claims can have not only a financial cost but also a reputational one and we seek to liaise with our clients closely creating a partnership to ensure all eventualities are considered.

Employers' liability - in a somewhat stressful and challenging work environment claims can range from stress claims to physical injuries, both caused by vulnerable and challenging residents or physical injuries caused by lifting or physical restraint.

Public liability - claims by residents are often complex and challenging, ranging from trips and falls and pressure sores to psychological damage

Claims and risk management support - should you be faced with a public or employer's liability claim, we can provide a claims service backed by a team with specific expertise in the care sector. We understand the challenges of working in this sector, the pressures on staff and the need to concentrate on the care provided and the best outcomes for residents. We therefore do not just deal with your claim but provide feedback about potential improvements or changes. We are also very conscious of the pressures placed on staff by litigation and as such we are as supportive as possible to those being asked to provide evidence.
