Pressure Ulcer Lawyers

Bed Sores and Pressure Sores From Negligent Care

Accordingly to statistics, 2.5 million people in the United States suffer from pressure ulcers every year. Pressure ulcers are caused by continuous pressure of weight of body on skin. Pressure ulcer prevention is as simple as moving around but if you are working long hours at work in a constant sitting position, or if you are not taken care of properly at the hospital, you might be at the risk of developing pressure ulcers. These ulcers can lead to spinal cord injury and can seriously damage your mobility.

Change in positions reduces the signs of developing ulcers. Also in case of hospitalization, neglect from nurses may result in development of pressure ulcers. Sustained pressure, friction and shear are known to be the leading cause of this painful condition. The areas that aren’t well padded with muscle or fat such as the spine, tailbone (coccyx), shoulder blades, hips, elbows and heels are most susceptible to such ulcers.

This is a serious problem. If you think that a friend or loved one developed ulcers due to hospital or care center negligence, it may be time to contact our pressure ulcer lawyers.
