Abuse can be emotional, physical or even financial. It can be deliberate or as a result of someone in a position of trust failing to provide necessary care.

Elderly abuse can often go unnoticed, with victims feeling too ashamed or scared to speak out.

Our personal injury solicitors can help you to secure compensation from the organisation responsible, which can help to fund care needs for the future.

Cases of this nature can be complex, especially if the victim has dementia, which is why it’s vital you have expert legal guidance at every step of the process.

Gotelee specialises in representing clients who have suffered as a result of abuse or neglect while in the professional care of a residential care home.

Our solicitors have significant experience of handling cases quickly and effectively, offering a local service from our offices in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh or Woodbridge.

Do you suspect elder abuse or negligence is taking place?

If you are concerned that your elderly relative has been abused or neglected, contact one of our lawyers who can assess the merits of your claim and advise you on how to move forward.

You may have noticed physical injuries such as bruises, cuts, burns, or broken bones. Other indicators may include changes in normal behaviour, weight loss, interference from the nursing home and signs of restraint.

Care home patients must have their individual needs assessed and be given a care plan which is continually updated. The care home should also have enough staff to ensure that the patient’s needs are met – including medication, personal hygiene, emotional support, prevention of bed sores, mobility aides, and health and safety.

High-quality, highly professional.

How can our solicitors help you?

Our solicitors can offer a free initial appointment to assess your claim ad discuss the likely prospect of success. We are able to offer a fully insurance protected No-Win No-Fee conditional fee agreement and will explain to you the best options available for funding your claim.
