New Jersey Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers

Pressure Sores and Bedsores

We Represent Clients on a Contingency Fee Basis · No-Cost Case Evaluation

There are few nursing home injuries that are more closely associated with neglect than bedsores. This injury can only occur when an immobile patient is not re-positioned on a regular basis. If your loved one has suffered a bedsore injury while in nursing home care, you may have a case of negligence against the nursing home.

At the law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP, we are a team of leading New Jersey personal injury trial attorneys with a strong record of recovering significant money damages for people harmed by nursing home and other types of negligence. We offer a free consultation to evaluate your case. With offices in Edison, Red Bank and Toms River, our lawyers advise and represent nursing home residents and their families throughout New Jersey.

A Sign of Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing homes in New Jersey are required to meet a standard of care regarding the health of residents. For an immobile resident, that standard of care includes changing the person’s position every two hours or more often to prevent bedsores (also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers).

Bedsores are a serious injury that can lead to sepsis, cellulitis and other conditions that can result in death. If your loved one has developed a bedsore following admission to a nursing home, our lawyers will conduct an investigation and consult appropriate experts to build a strong case of nursing home negligence. Our lawyers are recognized among the leading medical malpractice attorneys in New Jersey, with a case record of successful settlements and verdicts exceeding $550 million on behalf of plaintiffs.
