Bedsores or Pressure Ulcers Claims Lawyer

One of the signs of neglect in nursing homes is the appearance of bedsores. Also called pressure sores or ulcers, these painful skin lesions are caused by prolonged positioning when confined to a bed. Bedsores are considered preventable when adequate care is provided. Unfortunately, many residents in nursing homes are inflicted with bedsores caused by poor care, abuse or neglect. Residents and their families may be eligible to seek legal claims against nursing homes for neglect if they have pressure ulcers.

Preventing bedsores should be a priority for personnel at nursing homes. It is well known that those who are bedridden or have limited or no mobility are susceptible to pressure ulcers. To prevent these lesions from occurring, patients need to be turned and repositioned to alleviate pressure on the same areas. They also need adequate nutrition and hydration to help maintain healthy skin and tissue. When pressure sores are present, it is a sign of negligence in care and a cause for concern.

Dangers of Pressure Sores

Pressure sores are not only very painful for the patient, but they also put the health of the patient at risk. Once a bedsore develops, it can be difficult to heal. There is a risk of infection, which can lead to serious complications such as septic shock or sepsis. In severe cases, a patient with pressure ulcers may be at risk for death if the infection is not controlled. They may need extensive wound care, hospitalization and surgery to treat their bedsores. This is unacceptable, especially when the condition is caused by neglectful care from a nursing home.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
