Bedsores are troubling signs that may result from nursing home abuse or neglect. When you see bedsores on a loved one currently at a nursing home, you may find it difficult to decide what to do. Though you may need to move your relative to a new place where they can be safe, that’s only half the battle.
You also need to hold the nursing home accountable for their neglect. However, holding negligent nursing homes accountable is not a battle you have to fight alone. A Dundalk nursing home attorney from Brown and Barron can help you recover damages for nursing home abuse or neglect, including bedsores.
What Recoverable Damages Can I Seek from a Bedsore Injury Case?
Bedsore may not be the first thing you may consider to be nursing home negligence. However, bedsores can be serious, painful, and may require extensive treatment to heal. This treatment can be long-term and very costly. Any medical bills you accumulate to diagnose and treat your loved one’s nursing home bedsore injuries could qualify as recoverable damages.
However, medical bills are not the only recoverable damages in a nursing home bedsore case. If you notice signs of nursing home neglect, such as bedsores, you will have to find a new nursing home for your loved one. Finding and moving to a new nursing home can be expensive, especially on short notice. Brown and Barron can include the cost of relocating your loved one in your demand for recoverable damages.
In addition, if your loved one has bedsores, they may have been suffering unnecessarily for an extended period. Prolonged suffering may cause undue mental anxiety and emotional distress. The law allows bedsore injury victims or their family members to seek damages both for pain and suffering as well as emotional distress brought about by their injuries.
A bedsore injury attorney can help you seek recoverable damages that your loved one has endured from a nursing home’s abuse or neglect.

What Is the Total Value of My Loved One’s Bedsore Case?
Generally, the higher the medical bills are, the more severe the injuries are. In addition, injuries of higher severity usually result in more pain, suffering, and emotional distress for the victim. The total value of your case hinges on how much recoverable damages you or your loved one suffered because of their nursing home bedsore injuries.
Because every nursing home neglect case is different, for us to estimate the potential value of your case, we need to have a full understanding of the facts. We can only obtain a full picture by talking with you about your case first.
