Bedsores, Pressure Ulcers, Pressure Sores...
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of people develop pressure sores each year whilst in hospital or private nursing care. This is a shocking statistic when you consider that in most cases pressure sores are preventable with proper assessment and nursing care.
Pressure sores are painful and debilitating and can cause serious harm. They can develop within hours and although generally affect older people anyone who is immobile for a period of time can be at risk.
It is the caregiver’s responsibility to ensure that anyone at risk of developing pressure sores receives the proper care to prevent the condition occurring. If they do not assess the risk properly or fail to implement a plan to reduce the risk to you or a loved one you may be entitled to claim compensation.
We have a specialist team of lawyers who have years of experience in dealing with pressure sore claims. We are able to give you immediate practical advice today as to how we can help if you or a loved one has suffered with pressure sores within the last 2 ½ years.
Most people are unaware that they may be entitled to financial compensation for the pain and suffering caused by pressure sores. We have achieved significant awards of damages for clients and for families of people who have passed away, but developed pressure sores in the later stages of nursing care.
We never ask you for any money towards the running of your case and if your claim is unsuccessful we will write off any costs that have been incurred so that there is nothing for you to pay.
