Compensation for bed sores

Dealing with bed sores is not something that anyone wants to experience, and if you are the victim of this type of injury then chances are that you are already struggling with a health issue or immobility. Bed sores generally occur as the result of a negligent carer or healthcare professional who has failed to turn you, or to rest you in a position where you can avoid bed sores, if this is the situation then you could look to claim against them.

Regardless of your situation, if you feel that your healthcare professional or carer has been negligent towards you, and you have been left with bed sores as a result, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

IN WHICH SITUATIONS COULD A COMPENSATION CLAIM BE CONSIDERED?

A compensation claim for a bed sore can be considered in a number of different situations, some common examples of where you might look to claim include:

  • Claims for negligent care in a care home
  • Claims for negligent care in a hospital
  • Claims for a failure to notice a bed sore during a check-up
  • Claims for poor hygiene within a hospital
  • Claims for poor hygiene within a care home environment

WHO COULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR MY BED SORES?

In general bed sores result from lying or remaining stationary in the same place for an extended period of time, and generally these occur when you are either in hospital recovering from an injury or in a care home. If you find yourself in either of these environments then you will most likely be looking to make a compensation claim against either a care home employee or a worker at your local healthcare practice.
