Pressure ulcers are another name for bedsores and are one of the many signs of nursing home negligence and abuse. The skilled pressure ulcer lawyers of the Clinesmith Law Firm work hard to bring justice to the elderly and make sure that these cases are not ignored.
A pressure ulcer can be defined as an area of the skin that begins to break down and become damaged due to something continuously rubbing or pressing against that area. Pressure on this area reduces blood circulation to the area causing a deterioration of skin cells and resulting in an open wound.
Pressure ulcers often manifest themselves on areas of the body that is confined to a certain position on a bed or in a wheelchair.
Different areas of the body are affected, depending on the structure the person is confined to.
Most pressure ulcers result from friction and sustained pressure on the area of the body. Nursing home negligence is often a cause of this painful sore because caregivers may forget to inspect the positions the patient is in and may not move them frequently to give relief to the areas that are rubbed the most.

"Hard to find a place that genuinely cares about you and your loved ones. Most people don't understand cases sometimes take years to settle and want results and answers right away. My case took about a year and they made sure to communicate with me every step of the way. Im sure this company has thousands of cases, but they always take the time to keep in contact with me. Couldn't say enough good things about the staff they always go above and beyond for their clients."
