Decubitus ulcers, more commonly known as pressure ulcers or bed sores, are the ultimate sign of negligence. Bed sores are not an accidental malady. In fact, they only occur when patients are left in the same position for long periods of time. If your loved one is suffering from bed sores, you need to take action now to put an end to the neglect.
Pursuing Bed Sore Claims In Thousand Oaks And Westlake Village
At Berriz Law Group, our Ventura County lawyers bring extensive experience to nursing home negligence and abuse cases in Southern California. We believe that the most vulnerable among us deserve to be aggressively protected, and that the victims of negligence should be fully compensated for what they have gone through and will continue to go through.
There Is No Excuse For Bed Sores
When bed sores are present there is no question of negligence. Rather than investigating to determine whether there is negligence, the investigation is to determine who was acting negligently.
We thoroughly examine these cases in order to determine who is responsible for the neglectful behavior and then aggressively seek compensation from those responsible. Beyond going after individuals who were entrusted with the care of a family member, we also examine institutional conditions that lead to bed sores. For example, we can pursue a claim against a nursing home that failed to adequately staff the home if the lack of staff resulted in negligent care.
