Bedsores, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers are often
a sign of neglect and can be the result of hospital malpractice, nurse malpractice or nursing home negligence. Sadly, they are the underlying cause of death for several thousand across the country each year and many patients in the New York area. Bedsores and Pressure Sores are not the fault of the patient. The patient is a victim. Nursing homes and hospitals will deny their liability and may even discharge the patient to another facility to pass the buck-- but it should not deter you from getting the justice you and your family deserve.

You've noticed bedsores, now what?

If you notice any sign of bedsores, pressures sore or neglect, alert the nursing staff and attending physician or nursing home director immediately. Be persistent, because if the administration and staff are slow to respond your loved one could develop life threatening bedsores. Care for the patient first. Then you may call our law firm. Bedsores are a sign of neglect! Unfortunately some families do not contact a lawyer until after the unwarranted death of a loved one. Be pro-active and get immediate medical and legal assistance and do what is in the patient's best interest--not what is easier for the facility.

Unsure or uncomfortable speaking to the hospital? Then give us a call, we can help guide you in getting better attention for your injury.

Do not be intimidated or frustrated by any staff m.embers' lack of help. Your goal is stopping the progression of the bedsore. If you are unsure how to handle the conversation with staff call us and we'll guide you through the best way to do it. The next step is to see if you have a valid lawsuit. Simply find out your options and call us for a free consultation, or fill out our online Bedsore Case Evaluator. All information is confidential.
