Texas Bedsores Lawyer
Galveston Pressure Ulcer Injury Lawyer
Bedridden residents require extra care, and it is the responsibility of the nursing home staff to see that they receive it. People who cannot get out of bed are prone to certain types of injuries that others are not. Some of the most prevalent, and most easily prevented, injuries are bedsores. Also referred to as pressure ulcers, these are lesions on the skin that are caused by sitting in one position for too long without shifting your weight.
Bedridden residents are often not able to roll over or shift their weight without the help of nursing home staff. If your loved one has bedsores that could have been prevented if the staff had provided more attentive care, you may have a claim for damages. Be sure that you have an experienced Houston bedsores attorney by your side who will hold the responsible parties accountable.
Representing Victims of Nursing Home Neglect Throughout Texas
If bedsores are left unchecked, they can progress into open sores or even craters that damage the tissue, muscle and bone beneath the ulcer. In the most extreme cases, bedsores can result in damage to the tendons and joints in the region of the wound. Any of these conditions will have a much more damaging effect on an elderly person.
At the Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates, we work in association with personal injury lawyer Paul Ash to represent clients throughout the Houston and Galveston area who have suffered bedsores that could have been prevented by nursing home staff. We will seek to hold the negligent parties accountable and work to secure maximum compensation on your behalf.
