With appropriate assessment and nursing, patients should not develop pressure sores – commonly known as bed sores – whilst in hospital, under home supervision or, whilst in a care facility.
The open wounds caused by bedsores can lead to the patient developing other illnesses as a consequence of infection. In some cases this can be fatal. Often the wounds caused by pressure injuries become so deep that infection can spread quickly.
At Browell Smith & Co Solicitors our team have helped secure compensation for many people who have, through no fault of their own, developed pressure sores.
It is estimated that over 95% of pressure sores should have been prevented, which is why if you or a loved one has developed a pressure sore while being cared for in hospital, at home, or in a residential care home it is important that you take legal advice.
In many cases we can recover compensation, not only in respect of the pressure sore itself but also to fund the cost of additional nursing care to help recovery.
Contact our expert team today to arrange a free initial consultation at any of our offices, in Newcastle, Cramlington, Ashington, and Sunderland, or alternatively, you can request a call back to discuss your particular requirements.

As with all claims for Medical Negligence compensation, there are time limits within which a claim must be lodged with the Court. For accident claims, court proceedings must be started within three years from the date of your accident.
In the event that court proceedings are not started within three years from the relevant date, the negligent party may be able to escape paying compensation on the basis that your claim is out of time.
