Unfortunately, the people who require nursing care are often the most vulnerable. In such situations, it is critical that the care received is of the highest standard possible.
However, all too often, the care given to the sick and elderly falls dangerously short. If you or a family member have been the victim of sub-standard care in a nursing home, hospital, or even in the community, and have suffered as a result, we can help.
At Price Slater Gawne, our sympathetic and caring lawyers have extensive experience helping patients and their families secure the compensation they deserve following poor nursing treatment.
Typical claims include:
- Bed sores and ulcer claims following insufficient nursing care
- Medication and prescription error claims
- Claims following injuries and fractures sustained after falls or poor handling
- Claims following the inappropriate use of equipment.
While compensation can’t make up for the upset and distress caused, it can be crucial to fund any future medical treatment, rehabilitation, and nursing care requirements. Where appropriate, compensation can also help reduce the long-term impact of the negligence, taking into account any psychological damage, and impact on future earnings.
If you or a loved one have suffered at the hands of inadequate nursing care, contact us today for a no-obligation chat to find out how we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
