Wound infection

Infection in the blood called sepsis

Bone infection called osteomyelitis

Tissue death/gangrene

STAGES OF BEDSORES

Without intervention, bedsores can infiltrate deep into the body, extensively damaging skin, muscle, and even bone. The longer the bed sore goes without treatment, the deeper and more dangerous it becomes.

STAGE 1: The skin is irritated but not broken, and may be painful to the touch.

STAGE 2: A small ulcer red or brown in color will develop on the upper layers of skin

STAGE 3: A deep wound develops through the layers of the skin allowing the deeper layers to be seen. The skin around the wound may be yellow.

STAGE 4: The wound has penetrated through the layers of skin and fat into the muscle, tendons, and bone. The wound may appear purple or black.

Late stage bedsores are life-threatening and can be difficult to treat. Unfortunately, many elderly or terminally ill patients will not recover from late stage bedsores.

DID YOUR LOVED ONE SUFFER BED SORES?

Bedsores develop when tissue begins to break down from prolonged pressure and can occur anytime a person doesn’t move enough. Patients who are elderly, bed-ridden, or who have limited mobility may be more likely to develop bedsores if they aren’t receiving the quality care they are owed. The most common locations for bedsores to develop are pressure point areas including –










These are areas where muscle and mass may have deteriorated leaving pressure points. Patients who are not turned often enough can develop pressure sores quickly.

DISCHARGING STUDENT DEBT OBLIGATIONS

When a school loses accreditation or closes because it cannot meet federal requirements, students are often left paying student loan obligations for worthless degrees or for credits that they might not be able to transfer to a similar program at another college.

Under a certain type of loan forgiveness called Borrower Defense Repayment or just Borrower Defense, students whose school mislead them or engaged in misconduct or violated certain state laws may have their loans forgiven, and be released from any further payment obligations. Students who are in default and parents who took out a PLUS loan to help pay for their child’s education may also be eligible to have their school loans discharged.

YOU MIGHT BE ELIGIBLE FOR BORROWER DEFENSE EVEN IF YOUR SCHOOL DID NOT CLOSE

To be eligible, you must be able to prove your school violated state law through act or omission directly related to your student loan or the educational service the loan was provided for. If you are eligible for forgiveness, you may have your outstanding loan debt forgiven, and you may be reimbursed for the amounts you have paid on the loans already.

Students who took out private loans or received funds through programs such as the Federal Family Education Loan Program, or a Perkins loan are not eligible to have these debts forgiven through the Borrower Defense program. Instead, they must take legal action against the school and use their recovery to pay their debt

Attorneys at our law firm are from coal mining families and grew up seeing firsthand the toll this dangerous work can take.

Pipeline companies that are granted eminent domain authority can condemn any property that they need to complete their project. This project may involve many types of land including –

Private property and residential lands

Commercial developments

Industrial properties

Special use lands

Rights-of-way

Easements

Billboards and signage

If your land is going to be affected by the Shin Oak pipeline, contact us now. Enterprise Products Partners may have your land inspected and appraised before making you an offer, but that appraisal may not include all the elements that must be factored to determine fair market value. We’ve seen condemnation appraisals for other projects that were well below half of the true value of the land. Don’t let this happen to you!

Patients die as a direct

result of bedsores

Bedsores are almost entirely preventable. No patient should suffer Stage 3 or Stage 4 pressure ulcers or bed sores while under medical care. Call us today at 212-871-1300 to see if you can obtain compensation for your loved one. 

CAUSES OF BEDSORES

Whether they are sitting too long in the same position or left lying in their beds for hours on end, bedsores are caused by neglect. Some of the most common contributing factors to bedsores include –

Failing to change the patient’s position frequently throughout the day

Leaving the patient in soiled clothes, diapers, or bed linens

Failing to routinely monitor patients for the initial signs of pressure ulcers

Failing to intervene after detecting bedsores

While some patients are so frail that skin damage is almost impossible to prevent, stage 3 and stage 4 bedsores are considered ‘never events,’ i.e., events that should never occur in a healthcare setting. Yet, millions of patients suffer pressure ulcers every year, and thousands will die from this preventable condition.  

2.5 million patients suffer bedsores each year. 60 thousand patients die as a direct result of bed sores. 17,000 bedsore lawsuits are filed annually against medical providers who fail to provide the proper care that prevents bedsores.
