Does Your Loved One Have Frequent Bedsores?
Paralyzed or bedridden patients must be turned or moved every few hours to prevent painful pressure sores, called decubitus ulcers. Unfortunately, however, it has been a growing trend in hospitals, nursing homes and other assisted living facilities that these patients are left to lie in one position for extended periods, resulting in painful bedsores.
We trust doctors and nurses to take proper care of our loved ones when they must be confined to a bed or wheelchair. When they do not, you have grounds to seek monetary compensation for the pain and suffering your loved one has endured.
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., our attorneys fight for the rights of victims of nursing home abuse and their families throughout Massachusetts. With more than 50 years of experience serving clients with a variety of personal injury matters, including nursing home neglect, we have the expertise and trial skills to pursue our clients’ best interests through aggressive, dedicated representation.
Pressure Sores Are Preventable Injuries
Despite what you may have been told, bedsores and pressure sores happen for only one reason — neglect. Whether as a result of understaffing by nursing home administrators or negligence on the part of primary caregivers, the fact remains that bedsores and pressure sores are preventable injuries.
All cases of nursing home negligence must first be reviewed by a medical tribunal to determine whether the accepted standard of care was violated. Once that determination is made, our lawyers pursue maximum compensation through aggressive negotiation or litigation to achieve the best possible outcome.
We Hold Negligent Caregivers Responsible
Your loved ones do not deserve to suffer for the negligence of health care professionals who were trained to recognize and prevent bedsores or pressure sores. Our attorneys are committed to helping clients and their families receive justice through full and fair compensation for their pain and suffering.
