Nursing Home – Assisted Living – Bed Sores
Massachusetts Pressure Ulcers Lawyer
Many patients or residents of nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities or other long-term care facilities have limited mobility and are often confined to their beds. Without the proper care, they develop bed sores. Bed sores, also known as decubitus ulcers or pressure sores, can be extremely painful and debilitating. They can readily lead to death. Tragically, these injuries are almost always avoidable when nursing homes implement and follow certain procedures. In this era decubitus ulcers should never occur with proper care.
If your loved one has suffered needlessly from bed sores in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, you want an experienced attorney to help you get full and fair compensation for their losses.
Flynn Law Firm, PC, with offices in Wellesley as well as other locations, represents to individuals throughout the Metro West area in Massachusetts. The firm understands what care facilities should do to minimize the risk of pressure ulcers. Attorney Robert H. Flynn presents a persuasive cases, both to insurers in settlement negotiations and in trial before a judge and jury, showing how facilities caused injury to patients or residents.
Protecting Victims of Nursing Home Bed Sores
Because of the risk of bed sores among nursing home residents, staff and personnel at these facilities have a responsibility to regularly monitor for symptoms or signs of a problem. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons from understaffing to inadequate training to simple negligence, caregivers frequently fail to meet the standard of care necessary to prevent bed sores. Once bed sores have developed, they can quickly become serious, leading to infection, sepsia and even death. These cases require a prompt and qualified expert investigation. At Flynn Law Firm, PC, we start with the medical record review by a skilled nurse consultant, followed by expert efforts by a nursing or medical doctor. We then prepare for filing suit and then for trial and settlement discussions. It takes experience.
Attorney Robert H. Flynn will keep you fully informed of any developments in your case, as well as your options moving forward so that you can make the right decisions for yourself and your loved ones.
