How much is my Decubitus Ulcer case worth?

This is a tough question to answer. To determine the true value of a pressure sore lawsuit, you need to consult a nursing home neglect attorney. Fill out the information to the right and a nursing home neglect lawyer will get back to you promptly.

Factors that matter in determining how much a bedsore case is worth:

1. Did the sore develop in a nursing home or hospital
2. Are there statutory damage caps for a nursing home/medical malpractice jury verdict in the state where the bedsore developed
3. The patient’s age
4. The resident’s skin condition when he/she entered the facility
5. Whether the resident had diabetes or another illness effecting skin texture
6. Whether the patient had a brain drain or some sort of tube which would make it difficult to turn and reposition
7. Whether the bedsore (decubitus ulcer) caused the patient’s death
8. Whether the pressure sore or decubitus ulcer caused an infection or sepsis.
9. If the decubitus ulcer caused an amputation or removal of skin
10. The surviving family members and their ages
11. The nursing home and/or hospital insurance policy limits.

Pressure sore lawsuits can range from being worth tens of thousands of dollars to hundred of thousands of dollars. Some even get 7 figure verdicts. It really depends on the facts of the case.
