Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. This is a negligence case for which you would need to prove negligence in order to claim damages. The doctor’s evidence will be crucial and you may also need additional evidence such as an expert report from someone experienced in nursing home care and management. This is the type of case that will require the expertise of a solicitor to help you progress this. You need an experienced litigation solicitor. I hope that helps.
