Medical Negligence Claim
Any dealings I have had so far have been very smooth and the staff are very efficient. They have explained things to me in a step by step way for easy understanding. They have also always called back when they have said they would, which is really good.

What are care home claims?
Whilst each case is different and based on their individual facts, care home cases usually comprise of injuries caused by an individual’s care provider. This may be in circumstances where an individual either resides in a care home or is in temporary respite care. It may also include cases where an individual has received inadequate care and assistance by professional carers in their own home.
Injuries may include falls, delays in obtaining treatment, wrongly identifying medical issues or not identifying them at all. We have also handled cases where there has been negligence by failing to administer medication or by administering the incorrect medication as well as abuse from staff members.
How do I make a claim?
If you feel that you or a family member have suffered as a result of negligence caused by your care provider you may be entitled to bring about a claim.
If you have personally suffered the negligence, you may bring about a claim in your own right. However, it may also be the case that the person who has suffered has passed away or they may be unable to bring about a claim themselves as they no longer have capacity. In such circumstances, a claim can be brought about on their behalf either by an appropriate person or litigation friend if the individual is still with us, or by the executor of the estate of surviving dependant if they have passed.
Our specialist team will discuss with you the possibility of pursuing a claim. The team at Oakwood Solicitors will be able to give you free advice on the prospects of your case and whether you would be eligible to make a claim.
