When nursing home residents are not given proper treatment or supervision, they can develop bedsores. While these injuries are easily avoidable with proper care, they can cause serious problems for residents. At the law offices of Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Delaware nursing home bedsores lawyers protect the rights of victims of nursing home abuse and neglect.
Having handled many nursing home injury cases, our attorneys understand the challenges facing the victims of abuse and neglect. While there is a statute in Delaware that all nursing homes must comply with internal investigations by the division of long-term care, the results of these investigations are not made public. This makes it very difficult for families to accurate information about what happened to their loved ones.
Since all nursing homes want to retain their certification, they will agree to state investigations but are often unwilling to work with families. As your attorneys, it is our job to help you determine what led to your loved one's bedsores or decubitus ulcers. Taking quick action, we will file a lawsuit as soon as possible and hire experts who can help us conduct our own investigation.
We recognize the conditions that often lead to bedsores. Whether a nursing home is understaffed or hiring lower level employees at night who do not provide proper care, we will make sure they are held responsible for their negligence.Contact Us
