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.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
