Care Home Negligence Claims

Residing in a care home is supposedly claimed to be the best place for elderly and disadvantaged people to get the care they need. Unfortunately, as is often mentioned in the news, vulnerable folks have been treated badly and neglected in nursing homes.

Stories are told about how staff in nursing homes fail in their duty of care and treat their patients with negligence. Some vulnerable aged individuals sustain personal injuries from careless staff. No doubt that the victims worry about their daily living and caring needs, whilst feeling anxious around other individuals.

Care Home Injury Claims Benefit

The advantage to making a compensation claim for care home negligence or personal injury is that there will be a raised awareness of the establishment's conduct and the need for it to improve care standards. Current and potential victims are then likely to be saved from further negligent staff in affected nursing homes.

No Win No Fee Funding Of Claims

As well as offering 100% compensation payouts, we handle care home negligence cases on our No Win No Fee basis where you do not pay anything if the claim has failed. This is a benefit for all claimants to avoid paying the solicitor’s costs if they choose to appoint a legal representative.

Since its introduction, the No Win No Fee claims are still a risk and solicitors are expected to absorb any losses where cases are not to their advantage. Our experienced lawyers will assess your details and will explain to you the likely chance of success. If the chance of winning meets the minimum requirement then you will not need to fund the claim as advertised.
