How do I make a claim about care home neglect
Should the vulnerable person be unable to make decisions for themselves because they no longer have the necessary mental capacity someone else, known as the 'Litigation Friend', can act on their behalf.
The Litigation Friend could be a concerned family member, someone who has already been granted Power of Attorney or appointed as a Deputy by the Court of Protection. The Litigation Friend acts for the injured person in their best interests taking decisions necessary to bring a claim.
