What are Bedsores
Bedsores, often called Pressure Ulcers or Decubitus Ulcers, are extremely painful for those the Arizona residents that have to suffer with them, and for the families that witness their loved ones in pain. Fortunately, almost all cases, bedsores are preventable when proper healthcare is provided. Therefore, when a person suffers from serious bedsores it is truly suffering that need not have happened if the healthcare provider had met their obligations to their patient.
We Represent the Victims of Serious Bedsores
At the McIver Brown Law Firm, we deliver justice across Arizona for the victims of bedsores. Our Arizona bedsore lawyers have represented and resolved cases involving persons with unstageable, stage 3, and stage 4 bedsores, infected bedsores, bed sores caused by failure to assess and turn the patient, to provide air mattresses, employ fall prevention measures, ensure proper hydration and nutrition of the individual or take other basic measures which would have prevented pressure ulcers from forming and when formed, prevent them from becoming more severe.
What “You Only Pay if We Win” Means
At McIver Brown Law Firm, we offer our clients award-winning experienced lawyers and staff who handle bedsore cases on a contingency fee basis. What does that mean exactly? It means that only if we achieve a positive financial outcome for your case are you charged a fee for our legal services; if we do not win at trial or obtain a settlement for in your case, you don’t pay us.
What “Free Case Consultation” Means
Free means free. Unfortunately, there are many more Arizona residents who are mistreated by medical malpractice or nursing home abuse than we are able to represent. Furthermore, due to unique laws surrounding medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, wrongful death that apply in many bedsore cases, the general public and even general practice attorneys are often unable to tell whether a person has a strong bedsore case. As a result, we invite anyone who believes that they may have a case involving a bedsore in Arizona to contact our offices, and speak with a member of our team to discuss their potential case.

"Tragically only 20% of nursing home abuse and neglect is ever reported, and because people are unaware of time limitations on their case, they often wait until its too late to take action."
