Using Photograhs of Bedsores/ Pressure Sores In A Nursing Home Neglect Lawsuit

We recently added an article to law firm library on bedsores, pressure sores, and decubitus ulcer cases. Many medical malpractice cases against nursing homes and health care facilities arise when patients suffer injuries such as bedsores due to the mistreatment of the facility. If this is the case, taking photographs of the bedsores could ultimately mean the difference between winning and losing a case.

Our Michigan nursing home neglect attorneys advise all victims of nursing home abuse to document all aspects of their injuries via photographs. Not only do you want to photograph the bedsore itself but also the progression of it as well. Bedsores or pressure sores can develop quickly so it very important to document the progression on a daily basis. 

As a patient you have the right to request to photograph or videotape your injures. A nursing home staff member does not have legal basis to not allow you to do so.

Patients of nursing home facilities who suffer from bedsore, pressure sores, or decubitus ulcers due to nursing home neglect and abuse do have legal rights. Contact our office now at (800) 606-1717 to discuss your case and speak with an experienced Michigan nursing home neglect lawyer
