We understand the standard of care nursing homes are required to maintain, and will work to ensure your loved one is protected and compensated for his or her injuries.

Bed Sores and Nursing Home Neglect

Bed sores typically develop on the pressure points on the buttocks, hips, heels and elbows. When these areas are exposed to prolonged pressure, the underlying tissue can break down and become infected. Sadly, many nursing home residents are unable to express the pain and suffering they are experiencing. It is important for loved ones to check residents for bed sores and other signs of neglect.

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling nursing home neglect lawsuits, and are prepared to handle sensitive and complex lawsuits involving neglect and abuse. It is important to remember that holding a nursing home to account for its negligence protects not only your own loved one, but other residents as well.
