Gangrene Infected Pressure Sore Lawyers

Attorneys For Pressure Ulcers With Gangrene

Gangrene is a complication that may develop due to the death of tissue in and around the pressure sore. Severe pressure sores may result in the reduction of blood flow in and around the wound. The reduced blood flow increases the ability of bacteria to grow. Bacteria produce toxins that the body is unable to remove.

When a nursing home patient has a bed sore that has developed gangrene, there is indeed cause for concern from a medical and legal perspective. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers, we represent people who have been neglected in skilled nursing facilities and have developed bed sores with complications such as gangrene. If your loved one developed gangrene in a nursing home setting contact our office for a free case review to determine if a claim for civil damages is appropriate.

Tell-tale signs of gangrene in wounds

Once the toxins accumulate, deterioration of tissue ensues. Ultimately, as the tissue deteriorates the common gangrene symptoms may occur (black or green discoloration of skin and foul odors). These infected wounds are disheartening for the individual and for their family as they are a visible and painful reminder of a wound that was unattended.

Attorneys holding medical facilities responsible for pressure sore complications

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers knows the embarrassment to the individual and family when gangrene is involved. Don’t make the mistake of assuming the officials with the medical facility or the insurance company will be as sympathetic! If your loved one has developed gangrene following the development of a pressure sore, we invite you to discuss your loved ones care with attorneys who are experienced prosecuting pressure sore lawsuits involving nursing homes, hospitals and other types of medical facilities.

Even in circumstances where the medical facility insists that proper care was provided, it may behoove you to get a second opinion from an outside source who can review the care in an objective fashion as opposed to trying to conceal inadequate care. Please contact our office for a free legal evaluation.

Client Reviews
  • Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
    ★★★★★
  • Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own.
    ★★★★★
  • This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you.
    ★★★★★
