Personal Injury Claim For Care Plan Failure

When Mrs E's elderly father was to be discharged from hospital the Defendants were instructed to put in place an appropriate care plan. Unfortunately whilst a care plan was prepared, it was not activated at the time Mrs E's father was discharged from hospital.

Mrs E's father subsequently had a fall at his home and was only discovered two days later when the district nurse called. Mrs E's father was rushed to hospital but sadly passed away two days later.

Mrs E contacted our accident and injury team and we offered to pursue a claim for compensation on behalf of her late father. Specialist accident solicitor John Hasson led the case and agreed to deal with it on a No Win – No Fee basis. Mrs E made the claim as executor of the estate against the care provider.

We immediately contacted the defendants who quickly accepted there had been a serious breakdown in their system. To avoid protracted and potentially distressing correspondence and court proceedings they made an early offer of settlement. Mrs E accepted the compensation offer and the injury case was settled within just two weeks of us sending the letter of claim.

Under our New Deal guarantee, the estate received 100% of the agreed compensation without any deductions. Our costs were paid by the defendant.
