It is a sad fact of life that as we age, we become less independent and more reliant upon medical treatment and at times can also need care which is provided on a residential basis.

There have been a number of high-publicity cases involving the care and mistreatment of elderly individuals in both hospitals and care homes. Often, in these cases, the treatment can either lead to the elderly person’s death, or can cause them unnecessary suffering in their final months, weeks and days.

At McKeag & Co, we have a strong belief that it is only through pursuing claims such as these, which may not be considered to be as ‘high value’ as other claims, that we can hold the medical profession to account and try to make sure that such incidents do not occur again in the future.
