Bedsores/pressure sores/pressure ulcers are open wounds that often occur on skin covering bony areas of the body.

When an elderly patient or resident becomes bedridden or wheelchair bound, they are dependent on the nursing home, assisted living, or rehabilitation staff to perform frequent position changes to prevent bedsores from developing. If the staff fail to properly perform these position changes, bedsores and ulcers can develop. Besides the immediate pain that these bedsores cause, they can also lead to further deterioration of a resident’s health, including complications such as sepsis, a life-threatening infection.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of bedsores or ulcers, the nursing home, assisted living facility, or long-term rehabilitation center may be held accountable. Our attorneys have specific experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by bedsores or ulcers. If you would like to discuss your case or want more information, please contact our offices for a confidential consultation.
