Pressure ulcers and bed sores develop over time and are caused by prolonged pressure to one area of the body. The elderly and disabled adults are susceptible to these injuries due to limited mobility. When nursing home employees fail to take steps to prevent bed sores, they are guilty of negligence. At Ventura, Ribeiro & Smith, our Connecticut nursing home abuse lawyers will hold all responsible parties accountable for their actions while we fight to get you compensation.
Bed Sores and Pressure Ulcers Are Serious
Bed sores and pressure ulcers can lead to serious medical problems. These types of injuries can quickly lead to infections that can cause permanent damage or even death. The most frustrating aspect of these injuries is that they are entirely preventable. Nursing home employees need to closely monitor patients who are confined to a wheelchair or are unable to move on their own. Such patients should be repositioned often and care should be taken to see that they are properly hydrated.
We Hold Nursing Homes Accountable
Individual staff members at nursing homes are clearly responsible for any injuries due to neglect or abuse. However, they are often following the dictates and culture set in place by the companies that own the homes. Our dedicated Danbury nursing home injury attorneys will work to make sure that these companies are held liable as well. By seeking the maximum amount of compensation available, we can help send a message that nursing home abuse and neglect is absolutely unacceptable.
We Thoroughly Investigate All Claims
We can launch a full investigation for claims of nursing home abuse. Our lawyers at Ventura, Ribeiro & Smith will review all medical records and other information to help document your loved one's injuries. If you suspect that neglect has contributed to the death of a loved one, we may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Regardless of your situation, you can rest assured that we will represent your interests with sympathy and compassion while we work to get you the compensation you deserve.
