Dallas Bed Sores Attorneys

We have every reason to expect nursing homes to offer the care and medical attention that we are unable to give our aging family members. Unfortunately, although nursing home residents require quality care, some nursing homes are rather inattentive with their patients and put residents at risk of serious injuries

One common form of nursing home abuse is letting residents develop bed sores due to lack of movement or hygiene care. The Dallas bed sores attorney at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, believes that nursing homes should be held accountable for the injuries they negligently inflict upon their residents.

Symptoms of Bed Sores

As people age, they may lose mobility functions and be left unable to move on their own terms. Bed sores can form when pressure builds on the skin in contact with their chair or bed. This is a highly preventable, but dangerous injury that is often caused by negligent nursing home staff. In fact, these painful sores are capable of causing permanent damage if left untreated. The following symptoms are common indicators of bed sores:

  • Red or white discoloration on skin
  • Loss of skin
  • Blisters or raised skin
  • Deep wounds showing muscle tissue or bone
