Bedsores can be painful and deadly.
There are federal laws in place to protect you.

Bedsores are often a sign of neglect and can be the result of hospital malpractice, nurse malpractice or nursing home negligence. It is simply not acceptable that they should happen while a person is at a facility in the care

of medical professionals. Call us today and see if you may be eligible for a huge financial settlement. All calls are confidential. 

Free consultations by phone or in office.

Always confidential. Call 212-268-8200
