There are laws to protect you and
you have a right to sue for bedsores!
You may have started as an innocent nursing home resident or hospital patient yet ended up as a bedsore victim. This is not acceptable and usually a sign of negligence or malpractice. You should be compensated for your pain and suffering as well as other medical complications.
Our Virtual Bedsore Consultations
are here to stay!
In addition to 24/7 access to a free phone consultation, we continue to use video for client victims and their families that can't be together.
With a dedicated bedsore team, we can virtually be in the same room
for a lawsuit evaluation or to discuss updates on your case.
"Thank you so much on behalf of our family and how grateful we are for the care you show for our dad and us... for your time and your help. There are not many people like you out there." -J&S
You may have a significant lawsuit against a Hospital or Nursing Home. It is simply not acceptable that bedsores or pressure sores should happen while a patient is in the care of medical professionals. You should know that there are federal and local laws in place to protect you or your loved one, and a team of our legal and medical experts on your side if you need us. Nursing homes and hospitals have a legal and moral responsibility for their patients no matter what their age.
Bedsores can develop quickly, progress rapidly and are often not reported to family
by nurses or aides who are negligent, uncaring, or may even be protecting their employer-- not their patient.
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 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.

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.
