Care Home Injury

Care Home Injury

Care home neglect compensation: Sometimes the most vulnerable populations do not receive the medical help they need and are left abused, neglected or injured by day homes, care homes, residential care homes or hospitals. Our elderly deserve better. Irvings is committed to improving standards for residents in nursing and care homes across the United Kingdom.

Case study

Irvings recently acted for an elderly gentleman who was over-prescribed drugs by a pharmacist.  This resulted in a severe mental breakdown and accelerated the onset of his Alzheimer’s. The estimated acceleration was 18 months, hugely traumatic not only himself but his surviving spouse and family.  Responsibility for the overdose was accepted by the dispensary. We then had to attempt to quantify the impossible; what is the loss of 18 months worth of life? We consulted experts and in the end, the case settled with our client’s family satisfied with the result.
