Claiming Compensation for Elderly Abuse

As some of our most vulnerable citizens, our elderly are some of the people that need a touch of extra care. Unfortunately according to recent statistics a large number of elderly people suffer abuse or neglect while staying in a nursing home environment. As the elderly are at a stage of their life where the attention they receive is of critical importance, any problems that occur as a result of this neglect can be quite serious.

If you have suffered abuse or neglect while staying in a nursing home, or you know somebody that has then contact the Manners Pimblett team today and we may be able to help you to make a claim for compensation to cover any mental or physical injuries that you have incurred during your stay.

How can this neglect/abuse happen?

When it comes to neglect or abuse of the elderly it is not always performed in the way that we would traditionally associate with those words. Abuse of the elderly can involve financially abusing them by taking advantage of their situation and persuading them to invest in a scam or mentally abusing them by neglecting their needs and not providing the correct level of assistance.

Nursing home workers are paid to complete their tasks successfully and to make you feel comfortable, safe and secure. If you feel that they aren’t completing their task properly then you may be able to make a claim. Additionally, if you are left unattended for a period of time and incur an injury as a result, you may be able to lodge a complaint for compensation.

What types of neglect/abuse can I claim for?

If you feel that you have been neglected, or know someone that may be suffering in a nursing home then you may be eligible to make a claim. Some of the situations you can claim for include:

  • Neglect of care – If you are paying for nursing home support and not receiving a sufficient level of care and attention then you could be eligible for compensation
  • Financial abuse – If you have been tricked into entering into a false financial scheme or scam
  • Malnutrition – If you are not being served the correct food and drink or you are not being given enough, which is causing you to become ill
  • Hospital abuse – If you have problems with hospital treatment
