Bedsore Lawyer In Washington DC

Recently, there’s been an increase in medical lawsuits related to nursing home abuse regarding the development of bedsores, which also called pressure sores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers. There are DC lawyers who handle medical lawsuits who can help with legal issues related to bedsores.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Bedsores are “injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.” Bedsores most often develop on the skin that covers bony areas of the body, like heels, ankles, hips and tailbone.

Bedsores are often found in patients who reside in nursing homes and/or are bedbound. Bedsores are lesions on the skin that are result of prolonged pressure to the skin. Bedfast patients in a nursing home are required to be moved, position and adjusted so that their bodies do not develop these sores. If a resident in a nursing home is not adequately cared for, the person may develop bedsores. Sometimes bedsores can cause severe injury, infection, or even death.

If a bedbound-person develops bedsores, that can significantly reduce the quality of life for a nursing home resident. Often times, bedsores progress through intensifying stages before becoming severely infected. If it gets to that point, bedsore patients may have to endure severe pain and undergo extensive medical treatment. Reaching out to a DC lawyer who handles medical lawsuits can help with a bedsore settlement, so that the nursing home resident or the family in order to be compensated for financial, physical, and mental hardships sustained.

If you are a nursing home residents or the loved one of a nursing home resident who has had medical issues as a result of bed sores, you may be entitled to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit against the nursing facilities responsible for the harm caused by bedsores. Bedsore settlements may be awarded to residents of the facilities or their families as a means of resolving bedsore lawsuits outside of the court system.

Many nursing home residents have reached bedsore settlements with the help of bedsore lawyers. An 88-year-old woman in Delaware developed a large amount of bedsores which eventually became severely infected. Her family filed a lawsuit on her behalf against the nursing facility that she was in the care of. With the aid of a personal injury attorney, the woman and her family were awarded a $2.3 million bedsore settlement.

A quadriplegic man living  in an Illinois nursing home developed bedsores but the bedsores did not heal for more than a year. His family filed a lawsuit on his behalf, and with the help of their bedsore lawyer, he was awarded a $1 million bedsore settlement. Additionally, a 75-year-old woman was staying at a nursing home and had severely infected bedsores and died. The family filed a lawsuit and received a settlement of $1.2 million.

Deaths do result from bed sores and when this happens family members of the deceased bedsore patients may file lawsuits on the their family member’s behalf. A wrongful death lawsuit can result in a significant compensation for the family after the loss of their loved one.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
