Care Home Negligence Leaves Elderly Woman with Pressure Sores

04 May 2011

A client of ours developed pressure sores on her hip and leg after she was not taken care of properly so made a care home compensation claim.  Upon admission to the home she had been classified as high risk of suffering pressure sores so the fact that the care home ignored these results makes the case all the more shocking.

RJW’s expert clinical negligence solicitors negotiated with the defendant and after proceedings were issued a settlement of £5,000 was agreed to compensate our client.
