Pryers Solicitors represented Joyce in a claim on behalf of her mother, who had sadly passed away in 2016.

Joyce’s mother was in a care home and unfortunately developed a grade four pressure sore to her sacrum, and a grade two pressure sore to her hip between April 2015 and January 2016. Pressure sores can be incredibly painful, and if not properly healed can last years and lead to more serious infections.

In January 2016, Joyce’s mother was admitted to her local hospital when she was diagnosed with pneumonia and where, unfortunately, she later passed away.

Pryers Solicitors obtained medical reports from a tissue viability nurse and a consultant physician and geriatrician. A letter of claim was sent alleging failures in respect of ulcer risk assessments.

After negotiations with the defendant, Joyce accepted an offer to settle the claim at £16,000.
