More about Pressure Sores, Bedsores, and Decubitus Ulcers: 

These wounds are often a sign of neglect and can be the result of nursing home negligence or malpractice.

  • Sadly, bedsores are the underlying cause of death for several thousand across the country annually and many patients in the New York area suffer from the actions or lack of action from medical professionals.

  • Bedsores and Pressure Sores are not the fault of the patient. The patient is an innocent victim.

  • Nursing homes and hospitals may 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 deserve. 

Call us for a free consultation to find out if you have or valid pressure sore lawsuit.

  • If you prefer, use our Online Case Evaluator.

  • There is no fee for you to sue and take on those who have unlawfully caused your injury. We invest our time, legal expertise, and resources to win your lawsuit and only receive a portion of your financial award if and when we win the case.

  • Nursing homes need to follow the law and the medical guidelines that are in place for the safety of nursing home residents. When they are not followed the nursing home may be liable for a lawsuit.

You've noticed bedsores, now what?

     If you notice any sign of bedsores 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.


     Bedsores are a sign of neglect! Unfortunately, some families do not contact a lawyer until after the unwarranted death of a loved one. Be proactive 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? Give us a call, we can help guide you to getting better medical care.

     Stopping the progression of bedsores is extremely important. If unsure how to handle the conversation with hospital staff call us and we'll guide you through the best way to do it.
