A common type of problem that can happen when New York hospital patients are bedridden is the development of a bedsore. Health care facilities have protocols in place in order to prevent people from developing bedsores, but medical staff members do not always take the steps that are required to help prevent their development.

If you have developed bedsores because of negligent care that you received in the hospital, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the medical staff and the hospital where it happened. Hospital staff members are supposed to turn patients regularly so that they do not develop bedsores. They are also supposed to provide certain types of equipment to prevent bedsores from developing.

Bedsores can lead to serious infections and other problems. You will need to show that the bedsores developed because of the negligent actions of the medical staff by getting copies of nursing logs and other medical records to support your claim.

At our firm, our attorneys understand how to prove our clients' claims when they have suffered bedsores and resulting injuries because of the negligent actions of hospital staff personnel. We work to gather the records that our clients need to build strong cases. Our attorneys are often able to negotiate settlements for our injured clients by getting help from medical experts. In some cases, hospitals and doctors will try to fight against our clients' valid claims, and we may take those cases to trial before juries. If you or your loved one suffered serious injury from bedsores in the hospital, you may want to read our New York hospital bedsores page for more information.
