Deciding to put a relative in a care home, or hospital can be a difficult and upsetting decision to make, which means it is all the more devastating if you discover that the care providers you put your trust in, have provided care that is not only below the expected standard, but is degrading, neglectful and in the worst cases, life-threatening.

Care Home Negligence – we seek compensation for you or your relative

 When care homes and hospitals have been negligent, or breached their duty of care and you, or a family member have been injured as a result, then you are fully entitled to make a claim for compensation.

At Rotheras, we understand how distressing it can be to discover a loved one has received woefully inadequate care in a place where care should be the top priority. As a result, we provide sensitive and sympathetic advice and will support you every step of the way, so that you feel confident your case is being dealt with to the highest standard.

Tyes of care home injury and neglect that we can help you claim compensation for:

Bed Sores and Pressure Sores, through failure to identify and correctly treat a pressure sore in order to prevent infection, this can be due to failure to move the patient in their bed or wheelchair, or ensuring they have the equipment to facilitate this themselves

Misdiagnosis of injuries or failure to identify injury and illness altogether

Failure to provide equipment such as bed rails, walking frames, grab bars, walking sticks and mobility aids can cause slips, falls and trips leading to fractures and life-threatening injuries

Giving the incorrect dosage of medication, failure to administer medications can lead to worsening of existing conditions or may lead to new illness or injury developing

Inadequate provision of food and water, this can cause dehydration and malnutrition, exasperating existing illnesses and or causing new illnesses, inadequate care and support during mealtimes is also

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.
