It is up to you whether or not you sue a nursing home for a family member with bedsores. This type of injury can be exceptionally painful and the only way to improve future care for patients is to hold wrongdoers responsible for their actions. This means that lawsuits can be helpful in deterring future bad actions. Personal injury lawyers and nursing home abuse lawyers handle bedsore cases. The statute of limitations on a Kentucky bedsore case is one year. If a family member has been hurt you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
