Pressure Ulcer Lawyers in Philadelphia

Bed Sores May Indicate Negligence or Abuse

It is estimated that some 2.5 million people in the United States suffer from pressure ulcers, or bed sores, every year. These are caused by the continuous pressure of an individual’s body weight on a particular area due to being in bed or seated for too long. This is most common in the elderly or infirm, who need assistance to move about, but can also happen to those in the hospital receiving treatment but are otherwise able-bodied. These ulcers can lead to spinal cord injury and can seriously damage your mobility. 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, 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 ulcer due to hospital or care center negligence, it may be time to contact our pressure ulcer lawyers in Philadelphia. Call (215) 392-6616 today to get started.

Understanding Your Rights

Patients who are immobile are at a greater risk of developing pressure ulcers. Most people who suffer from pressure ulcers are admitted to hospitals or residents of nursing homes. In such incidences, we can work to track the causes of ulcer and seek compensation from those responsible for such negligence.
