Pressure Sore Claims



Let us call you back at a convenient time.

For some people, pressure sores are an inconvenience that requires minor nursing care. For others, pressure sores can be serious and lead to life-threatening and debilitating complications, such as blood poisoning or gangrene. They are commonly caused by pressure from a hard surface, such as a bed.

Common errors include...

  • Failing to provide appropriate nutrition and hydration;
  • Failing to reposition the patient regularly;
  • Failing to properly assess incontinence levels;
  • Failing to provide support devices to relieve pressure areas.
  • Failing to evaluate pressure points.

If you have reason to believe that you have suffered a pressure sore as a result of substandard medical treatment you may have a medical negligence case. In these situations, it is vital that you contact a specialist medical negligence lawyer.
