Bed Sores Cases
Bedsore cases can occur in nursing homes in a variety of situations. In most cases, they involve patients with limited mobility, but every incident is different. If your elderly loved one has been impacted by bedsores, contact a nursing home abuse and negligence attorney in Hollywood, Homestead, Miami, or your community for legal advice. Bedsores are typically the result of negligence and because they are preventable, you may have a claim.What Do I Need for a Bedsore Case in Hollywood or South Florida?
You may have a case if you or an elderly loved one have been injured by bedsores and have suffered losses as a result. For example, if your loved one needed counseling, surgery, doctor’s visits and other expensive treatment, you may have a claim.
To pursue a claim, you must be able to prove that the nursing home was negligent or willfully acted against your loved one’s interests. If the nursing home was overstaffed, had poor policies, or failed to notice a bedsore, you may have a claim.
The best way to evaluate whether you have a claim is to speak to a Hollywood nursing home abuse and negligence attorney. An attorney who has handled bedsore cases in Hollywood, Homestead, Miami, or your community can help you through every stage of the process and can tell you the strength of your case.

If you have a legal claim, you may be able to seek compensation for the damages your elderly loved one has suffered. However, nursing homes have attorneys and these attorneys will defend the nursing home, no matter how egregious their actions. The severity of the bedsores may be downplayed, for example.
A good Hollywood nursing home abuse and negligence attorney can help you through this process. An attorney can work with investigators to find evidence of wrongdoing and negligence. An attorney can negotiate with nursing home attorneys and can seek an out-of-court settlement or may be prepared to go to trial in your case. At every stage of the process, there will be decisions to make and a qualified lawyer can help you explore those options so you choose the right ones for you and your family.Should I Pursue a Bedsore Case?
It is a deeply personal choice, but pursuing a case has several benefits:
- It holds the nursing home accountable and can help alert other families to the abuses, so others do not have to suffer as your family member did
- It helps you seek compensation so you can help pay for the best treatment and care for your senior family member
- It helps you seek justice, so other vulnerable seniors do not have to suffer
It can be useful to at least explore your options, so you can make the right choice for you.
