Experience helping victims of bed sores

Although bed sores are relatively common occurrences in the nursing homes and other assisted living facilities of Cook County and the greater Chicago area, that does not make their occurrence excusable.

These sorts of injuries, which develop when there is too much pressure on one part of the skin, are easily preventable so long as a nursing home gives its patients proper food and drink and makes sure to move them in bed if they are not able to do so themselves.

Illinois residents should not underestimate the severity of these types of injuries either. Aside from being extremely painful, when bed sores get missed, they can affect the bone and muscle tissue underneath the infected area of the skin, causing extensive and permanent damage. Bed sores have been known even to lead to nursing home deaths. In short, a patient and his or her family can and should take these injuries seriously and have every right to demand answers when they happen.

In this respect, our law office collectively has decades of experience representing victims of personal injury, including bed sore victims. We have a track record of recovering compensation for our clients, and we work hard to get the best possible result in all of our cases.

Our approach to cases of bed sores involves a deliberate and thorough investigative process in which we try to ask all the right questions. For instance, we work to find out why a patient got bed sores what, if anything, the nursing home did to prevent or, if they were not preventable, to treat them effectively. After this investigation, we help our clients pursue their available legal options.
