Bedsores are most often caused by immobility and pressure on specific body parts. When you trust your loved one to a nursing home’s care, you should be able to depend on them to ensure this avoidable injury does not occur. If it does, our Greenville nursing home bedsore lawyer can help you prove the neglect that led to your elderly loved one’s condition and fight for financial compensation.
At Hammack Law Firm, our team will prepare your nursing home neglect case by collecting evidence and photos, identifying and interviewing witnesses, and identifying the at-fault party’s liability. We also help you determine the monetary value of your lawsuit, including your loved one’s medical care, relocation costs, and pain and suffering. In addition, we handle the negotiation process for you or represent you in court if a favorable settlement offer is not made.
Leave Your Nursing Home Bedsore Case to Us
Part of our personal injury law firm’s goal is to make nursing homes safe for every resident in our state. One way we do that is by requesting financial compensation whenever a client is injured in a facility’s care. To establish your right to compensation and strengthen your case, we will:
- Manage all case-related paperwork
- Investigate the nursing home and staff
- Read and review medical records
- Read and review nursing home records
- Interview nursing home residents and staff
When an elderly family member is injured, you want to focus your attention on their care and recovery. With our team’s help, you can do just that while we take care of the details of your case and make sure the statute of limitations does not run out on your right to collect compensation.
In our warm, supportive office, we treat you like we do our own friends and family by combining a small firm feel and big firm experience. We put the personal into personal injury and hold negligent nursing homes and their staff accountable for your loved one’s current condition.
Understand Our Fee Structure for Nursing Home Clients
Do not let concern about the cost of filing an insurance claim or lawsuit stop you from seeking compensation for your injured loved one. When you are ready to hold the at-fault nursing home responsible for its negligent treatment of your loved one, we can help you get started on a contingency fee basis. That means you will have:
- No up-front costs
- No initial expenses
- An immediate start
When we review your case and agree on representation, we make a point of explaining our fee agreement upfront and in full. We explain the percentage of our fee and make sure you understand that we do not receive any compensation unless we win a settlement or verdict for you.

How Nursing Home Neglect Leads to Bedsores
A nursing home resident who suffers from bedsores is more likely to be a victim of abuse than neglect. According to The National Consumer Voice For Quality Long-Term Care, nursing home neglect can cause bedsores when one of its residents:
- Is improperly positioned or not regularly repositioned
- Does not receive proper personal attention or hygienic care
- Suffers from a lack of personal or assisted mobility
If your loved one was not properly cared for in their nursing home or did not receive the assistance needed to meet their mobility and hygiene goals, we can help you prove neglect and fight for compensation.
Damages Our Hammack Law Firm Team Helps You Recover
Recovering from a bedsore and finding a safe facility for your loved one can be costly and require extensive work. Our personal injury team helps you recover those costs from the at-fault party. We also help you fight for:
- Relocation and moving expenses
- Short- and long-term medical care
- Resulting mental and emotional trauma
- Immediate and ongoing pain and suffering
If your elderly parent or spouse in Greenville was neglected in their care facility and suffered from the pain and embarrassment of bedsore injuries, we can help. Our nursing home bedsore lawyer will prove the value of your injuries and help you seek financial compensation from the at-fault facility.
Start Fighting for Your Loved One Immediately
South Carolina imposes a filing deadline called the statute of limitations on all personal injury lawsuits. The personal injury and wrongful death statutes of limitations can be found in S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. Each generally entitles you to three years from the date of your elderly loved one’s injury or demise to file your lawsuit.
Because it can be hard to determine the exact date a bedsore started forming, it can be difficult to comply with the state’s statute of limitations on your own. You can leave this aspect of your case to us. We use your loved one’s nursing home and medical records and the statements of medical experts, if needed, to prove the timeframe of their injury and compliance with the filing deadline.
