Bedsores developing at a hospital isn’t acceptable

On Behalf of | Dec 23, 2016 | Hospital Negligence

When you go into the hospital, you expect care that will help you to improve. You don’t expect that you are going to suffer more harm during your stay than what you had when you were admitted. If you develop bedsores while you are in the hospital, you might opt to seek compensation from the hospital for negligence.

We know that you might still be trying to heal and don’t have the energy to put toward a legal battle. We are here to help you learn the options so that you can decide how you are going to proceed. Once you decide on a plan, we are here to execute it for you.

A big factor when it comes to bedsore cases is the cause of the bedsore. What factors led to you ending up with a bedsore? Was the hospital short staffed on nurses and patient care technicians? Were you attended to in a manner that was consistent with the standard of care that you were due?

The answers to those questions can help to determine what legal premise to seek compensation based on. It can also help to determine who should be held liable for the injuries you suffered. This could be the medical staff, the hospital, an insurance company, or other parties that contributed in some manner to the issue at hand.

Bedsores are very painful and can get worse quickly. There isn’t any good reason why you should have bedsores appear while you are in the hospital’s care. We can help you to seek compensation for the added medical costs, increased personal care costs, and possibly lost wages if that was a factor in your case.
