How to make a nursing or care home abuse claim.
Making a claim for Nursing or Care Home abuse can be a challenging undertaking. Your loved one may still be in the Nursing Home and you will worry about the affect on them of making a claim. You may have very strong suspicion that abuse or neglect is taking place but be unsure if you have sufficient proof.
The claim itself can be daunting; you may have to take a large healthcare provider to court. You will naturally worry that they will have access to specialists who you fear may out-manoeuvre you in court. You may have got to know the staff at the care home well, and find it very awkward to think about taking a claim against them. You may need to make a claim against the NHS and feel uncomfortable about claiming against such a cash strapped organisation.
