When you have an elderly parent or relative who is in need of temporary or permanent healthcare, you rely on the professionals who run the hospital or assisted living facility to ensure that he or she is receiving everything that he or she needs. Which is why so many people are horrified when they find that their elderly loved ones have acquired bedsores or pressure sores from lack of proper turning in beds and wheelchairs. If you or your elderly or injured relative has experienced bedsores, pressure sores, or pressure ulcers while residing at a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living facility, the Corbin, KY personal injury firm of Freeman, Childers & Howard, Attorneys at Law can assist you with your case.

Injuries Related to Neglect

Bedsores and pressure sores develop when the skin experiences constant pressure in one area. Elderly individuals are particularly vulnerable to this condition. Doctors, nurses, and nursing home staff are familiar with this phenomenon and are trained to prevent it. To combat pressure sores, bedsores, and skin ulcers, the staff should be instructed to routinely shift the patient's body to change the points of contact. The occurrence of these types of injuries is an obvious sign of patient neglect. Our personal injury attorneys have experience investigating claims of nursing home and ALF neglect. We will get you or your relative the compensation that you deserve.
