Savannah Bedsores Attorneys

Recovering More than $100 Million for Our Clients

Bedsores should not occur to residents attended to by nursing home staff. If they do, they indicate neglect and the facility should be investigated. If your elderly family member has developed bedsores in any type of care facility, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including for any additional medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

Tate Law Group, LLC has considerable experience in advocating on behalf of those harmed through elder and nursing home abuse. As nationally-recognized trial lawyers, we have the skills and resources needed to help bring you justice.

Facts about Bedsores

Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers, are caused by prolonged pressure against any part of the skin. They are common in those who lie in bed or sit in wheelchairs for lengthy periods of time. The most common areas for bedsores to develop are the back of the head, shoulders, elbows, lower back, buttocks, hips, inner knees, and heels. These are all areas where the body makes constant contact when lying down or sitting. They can be prevented by constant turning or moving of the affected area so that pressure is relieved against the underlying tissue.

A bedsore may begin with a discolored, red, or darkened area of skin.

If not treated properly, it can lead to:

  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Pus-like draining
  • Tissue damage to the layers of skin underneath
  • Damage to underlying muscle
  • Damage to underlying bone

As soon as you discover any type of bedsore, file a complaint with the nursing home facility.

If you believe neglect has occurred, discuss your legal options with an attorney at Tate Law Group, LLC. Call us at (912) 333-3915 or complete our online contact form.
