Pressure Sore & Bedsore Lawsuits

It is simply not acceptable that they should happen while a patient is in the care of professionals. You should know that there are federal laws in place to protect you or your loved one, and a team of legal and medical experts on your side.
Regardless of how the nursing home may have told you the sores happened, you have a right to get the facts and be compensated for injuries.
