Bed Sore / Pressure Ulcer Lawyers in Brick, NJ
Ocean County Personal Injury Attorneys Protect Your Loved Ones When They Are Not Being Properly Cared for
Bed sores, also referred to as pressure ulcers, occur when a bed-ridden patient is not turned or moved every few hours. These sores can be very painful and easily become infected, causing further health problems. Nursing home staff is required to move patients regularly and keep them clean and comfortable to prevent these sores. If you have a family member in a nursing home or care facility who has bed sores, the negligent parties should be held accountable in a nursing home negligence claim.
The law firm of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C. has more than 65 years of experience in handling medical malpractice cases, including cases that involve bed sores. Our New Jersey attorneys have in-depth medical knowledge and are adept at identifying situations where patients are not cared for properly. They use this knowledge to clearly explain the injuries your loved one has suffered to the defense or to a jury if your case requires a trial.
The size of our law firm allows us to dedicate the necessary resources to every case we accept. We build strong relationships with our clients and take the time to understand how the neglect of their loved one has affected not only that individual but the whole family. We have a strong track record of verdicts and settlements to our firm’s name.
Because of our reputation for only bringing legitimate claims against negligent parties, our cases are taken very seriously by the opposition and by members of the legal community. This can potentially aid our clients during pretrial negotiations. However, if we feel that our clients are not being treated fairly, we will pursue maximum compensation in court.
Causes of Negligence in New Jersey Nursing Homes
To run at a profit, many nursing homes and care facilities may not be adequately staffed, may hire unqualified employees and may not fully train the staff they have. All of these issues can easily lead to your loved one not being attended to in a timely manner and causing bed sores to erupt on their skin.
Our lawyers investigate your family member’s medical records, as well as the nursing home itself, to determine how the negligence occurred. We believe that fighting giants never goes out of style and we are comfortable taking on the largest and most established nursing homes to achieve justice for you and your family.
Nursing homes frequently claim that injuries like bed sores are a result of your family member’s condition. However, nursing home abuse occurs frequently and statements like “that just happens at this age” are a poor cover-up for neglect. By bringing a lawsuit against the nursing home where your family member resides, you may help prevent the abuse and neglect of other patients in the future.
