Fort Lee Bedsore Attorney
Has Your Loved One Suffered From Bedsores?
We take for granted that we can turn in bed when we've been lying on one side for too long. Immobile nursing home residents do not have the same luxury. For this reason, nursing home staff members must regularly turn residents who cannot turn themselves or painful and dangerous bedsores can develop.
At Jae Lee Law, Fort Lee bedsore injury attorney Jae E. Lee handles a wide range of nursing home negligence lawsuits, including those involving bedsores (also known as decubitus ulcers). If your loved one has suffered a serious injury or wrongful death due to the development of bedsores, we are here to offer knowledgeable advice and determined advocacy.

Bergen County Pressure Sore Lawyer
Bedsores form when prolonged pressure limits the blood flow to a part of the body. Common areas afflicted by bedsores include the hips, elbows, knees and other areas where there is not a lot of padding between the bone or joint and the skin.
A nursing home care regimen typically includes directions to turn immobile patients several times per night, during naps and whenever a resident lies still for a prolonged period of time. When negligent nursing home staff members fail to follow these directives, bedsores can develop.
A bedsore is a painful affliction and, if untreated, can lead to serious infections, tissue damage, gangrene and even wrongful death. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling nursing home negligence lawsuits and know the signs of neglect. If your loved one has suffered from bedsores, we will use our skill and experience to pursue fair and just compensation and to ensure others are spared from these harmful practices.
