Compensation for family following fatal injuries sustained whilst in care home

A formidable legal team, your trusted partner

We all recognise and appreciate the job carried out by care home workers. Taking care of the elderly who have complex needs, present several challenges for care home staff. Whilst care is often provided to a high standard, mistakes can, and often do, happen. Care homes owe a duty of care to patients, akin to that of all medical professionals.

Mr T was an elderly gentleman who, despite having good health throughout his life, started to develop symptoms of dementia. He was placed in a care home via his family, to ensure his needs were met.

When Mr T was admitted to the care home, he had a history of falling whilst in his property. A falls assessment was carried out by the care home, which resulted in a decision being made to provide Mr T with 24 hour care supervision and ensuring he was accompanied at all times.

Over the course of six month period, Mr T sustained a number of injuries whilst in the care home. It transpired that Mr T was not being adequately supervised by care home staff. Mr T sustained a serious head injury as a result of a fall, which led to a bleed on the brain, culminating in his death.

The family of Mr T instructed Livingstone Brown to investigate the circumstances of Mr T’s death. With our expertise and determination in obtaining the answers for Mr T’s family, Livingstone Brown were able to not only give the family all the information hey had the right to, but also to receive appropriate compensation for the loss of Mr T.
