Bedridden people or those confined to wheelchairs must be periodically repositioned. If they are not, they may develop bedsores (also called pressure sores) that damage the skin, muscle and capillaries. In severe cases, bedsores can result in death.
Many elderly people in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and hospitals are not fully aware of what is happening to them. If a family member or loved one has unexplained lesions or sores on the back, shoulders, elbows, hips or other parts of the body, you need to take action. Get medical help and take photos of the injuries with a cellphone. Then call the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., at (504) 500-5000.
When you choose our law firm, we will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the abuse and neglect suffered by your loved one. Our medical malpractice attorneys will document the negligence of the nursing home, hospital or facility, its management, and the employees assigned to provide care.
“In this day and age, bedsores are inexcusable. We will seek full compensation and justice for the suffering of your loved one.” – John W. Redmann
We will also place a value on financial losses and pain and suffering and seek full compensation in court or in settlement negotiations. By aggressively representing your loved one, we can prevent this kind of abuse from being inflicted on others.
