The information on this site is not, nor is it intended to be legal advice and does not automatically create an attorney/client relationship. Some bed sore cases may be referred to or partnered with our associates with full disclosure to potential client before we accept a case and enter into a working relationship with client.

"Federal laws are in place to protect patients. Do not let a hospital or nursing home get away with negligence or malpractice."

 

Timing is important both medically and legally. Bedsores, also known as Pressure Sores or Decubitus Ulcers advance quickly. No matter where they may occur on a body they can lead to serious additional complications and even death. When bedsores are noticed it's vital that you get immediate medical attention.

 

Do Not Delay Being Legally Informed:

 

Time is of the essence legally as well. The nursing home or hospital may already be defending against a possible lawsuit before you or your lawyer even contacts them. Especially if the deem themselves culpable. Also be aware that there are statutes of limitation as well.

You can call us for free at 800-278-2960 to discuss what may affect your case and limit or favor your potential of a large financial award for your pressure sores or bedsores.

 

For instance, if you did bring it to the attention of a medical professional, nurse, aide or nursing home administrator and they delayed addressing the issue it may help prove negligence. Or perhaps they even ignored your concern. Pay careful attention to their response. Whether malpractice or negligence, they may try and pass the buck and blame the patient or prior hospital stay. Be mindful that of statutes. Different states have different time frames to register a lawsuit. We can answer these questions for you with a free consultation.

 

The hospital may also already be preparing defense of a lawsuit without your knowledge. The sooner we are on your side the BETTER it is for your lawsuit.

 

Remember--the patient is the victim here. There are federal laws in place to protect them. Contacting an experienced Bedsore Law Firm, getting free information and finding out the monetary potential of your lawsuit is your first step to justice. You may even email us at bedsores@raphanlaw.com.

Stages of Bedsores, Pressure Sores, Decubitis Ulcers

Stage1:   
Stage 2:  

Stage 1 sores are not open wounds. The skin may be painful, but it has no breaks or tears.

Skin may appear reddened, like a bruise. The integrity of the skin remains intact but the area is at high risk of further breakdown. It is crucial that the area is identified promptly, since with proper treatment these sores should heal within 60 days.

 

 

 

 

At this stage the skin may break open, wear away, or form an ulcer which is usually tender and painful. The sore expands into deeper layers of the skin. It can look like a scrape, blister, or even a shallow crater in the skin. Sometimes this stage looks like a blister filled with clear fluid. Skin may begin to die.

Stage 3:   

At stage 3 the sore worsens and extends beneath the skin surface, forming a small crater. There may be no pain at this stage due to nerve damage. The risks of tissue death and infection are high.

 

 

 

 

 

At stage 4 the pressure sore is very deep, reaching into muscle and bone and causing extensive damage. Damage to deeper tissues, tendons, and joints may occur. You may even see to the bone. Serious complications, such as osteomyelitis (infection of the bone) or sepsis (infection carried through the blood) can occur.

Stage 4:  

Patients have the right to proper treatment.

Federal and Florida laws are in place to protect patients.

 

Millions of dollars have been awarded to bedsore victims.
