Establishing Liability for Bed Sore Claims in Shreveport, LA
Many bed sore claims arise out of
nursing home abuse, or failure on the part of nursing home employees or managers to provide
adequate care for individuals living there. A successful claim against
a nursing home must show that the individual or organization in question
owed a patient a duty of care.
It must also prove that the individual or organization failed to meet this
standard of medical care, and that the failure to do so resulted in injuries
to the patient. Injured individuals can receive compensation for a variety
of damages, including pain and suffering and any medical costs.
