What are Bedsores?
Bedsores are pressure wounds. They are wounds that develop as a result of consistent pressure being placed on one area over a long period of time. These wounds often occur in people with mobility issues. They occur on bony parts of the body including the:
- Behind the knees
- Shoulder blades
- Side or back of the head
Pressure sores develop when the supply of blood to the area is restricted as a result of consistent pressure. The tissues in the area are starved of oxygen and nutrients. They, therefore, become damaged and even die resulting in a sore.
Bedsores are often a sign of neglect by nursing home staff. Residents that are immobile rely on nursing home staff to change their positions and prevent the development of bedsores. When nursing home staff members fail to do so, these residents develop bedsores.
Bedsores can result in a number of complications. They can result in skin infections or infections that affect other tissues and organs in the body. Bedsore can even turn into cancer i.e. squamous cell carcinoma.

What is Personal Injury?
If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.
Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.
It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.
Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case.

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.
Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.
A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence.

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time.
