Pressure Sores Can Be the Result of Group Home Neglect
Group home residents who are immobile must be regularly turned in their beds or else run the risk of developing painful pressure sores (also known as bed sores and decubitus ulcers). Pressure sores are common, but when they develop due to group home neglect, victims may file a claim to pursue monetary compensation for the pain and hardship they have endured.
If someone close to you has suffered a pressure sore due to group home neglect, the knowledgeable lawyers at The Breslo Law Firm are here to help.

Is Your Loved One Suffering From Pressure Sores?
At The Breslo Law Firm, we help people who have suffered due to group home neglect, including those who have developed painful pressure sores. These conditions are common in group homes, but can be prevented with proper care from staff members. Pressure sores can develop when group home staff members:
- Fail to regularly turn immobile residents in their beds
- Leave residents sitting in the same position for long periods of time
- Fail to clean pressure sores and spare them from contamination
Our attorneys understand the importance of handling your legal issue with the utmost care and respect. We know that in cases involving pressure sores, vulnerable, developmentally disabled and special needs children and adults are often suffering needlessly. We are dedicated to helping your family, and helping to prevent this from happening to others.
