Pressure Ulcers

Pressure Ulcer Attorneys in Pittsburgh

Holding Nursing Home Professionals to a Professional Standard

Pressure ulcers and other bed sores are not just a fact of living in a nursing home. They can be a clear indication of neglect and improper care. You have legal options to recover compensation for the pain and complications caused while holding the right people responsible for neglect and abuse.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh nursing home abuse lawyers put decades of combined legal experience and a focus on protecting the sick and elderly in nursing home abuse claims behind every case. We have built a substantial segment of our practice around taking on these kinds of claims, and we are proud to have built a strong reputation for success.

A Leader in Representing the Abused

We are proud to have made Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., one of the first law firms in the region to make nursing home abuse and neglect cases a priority. While not all bed sores are the result of neglect or malpractice, they can usually be prevented and treated.

Our attorneys step forward when nursing home staff or physicians fail to recognize the problem or assist those who suffer from a pressure sore. We are committed to the work of representing elders who have become bedridden or medically prone to developing bed sores and pressure ulcers.

You rely on nursing home and assisted living facilities to provide your loved ones a comfortable, safe and professional environment. When these professionals fail to live up to their professional and ethical standards, we put the experience, resources, and knowledge behind your case to be effective.
