        Resident Develops Gangrene After Staff Ignore Pressure Sores

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

        Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates negotiated a favorable settlement incurred in favor of their client.

        • The Case

          A female resident who entered a nursing home without any prior pressure ulcers developed a stage IV pressure ulcer to her heel that became gangrenous. As a result, she had to have her foot amputated and lost the ability to ambulate independently.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence action against the nursing home. It stated that the negligence claim was not actionable under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act. Horwitz injury attorneys insisted that if it were not for the staff’s failure to respond to the development of their client’s pressure ulcer, their client would not have developed gangrene.
