FAQ: Frequently Asked Bedsore Questions:
Q: How much is a bedsore case worth?
A: Bedsore lawsuits can yield hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. The answer depends on several factors. For example, what stage is/was the bedsore? Did the bedsore lead to surgeries, other infections, or an untimely death?
What is/was the level of pain and suffering? Has current or future lost wages been calculated? Sometimes there may even be two institutions, a nursing home, and a hospital, both liable for negligence, yielding a higher payout.
