Bedsores occur when a person sits or lies in the same position for too long. They are most common in people who are bedridden and not fully functional. Many of these people are under the care of a medical facility or nursing home. It is the responsibility of the staff to check on patients and move them regularly to avoid bedsores.
People who develop bedsores can be susceptible to a variety of infections and permanent muscle damage. Some can even be fatal. When bedsores are the result of negligence on the part of a care facility or its staff, victims have the right to be compensated for their medical care, pain and suffering, and other losses. These are complex cases, and the assistance of a South Texas bedsore injury attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected.
