Brian P. Murphy, a Philadelphia and PA/NJ Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer, litigates bed sore wrongful death cases against nursing homes, hospitals, and assisted care facilities. His job is to identify the source of the abuse or injury and hold the facility accountable. In Mr. Murphy's experience, it usually comes down to numerous violations of the standard of care that result in these avoidable injuries. In a recent case, Mr. Murphy identified several causes of bed sores to a resident that led to a wrongful death settlement.

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bed sores are wounds that occur when a person is left for prolonged periods without being turned or moved. They mostly develop at nursing homes/assisted living facilities/hospitals when residents are unattended in beds or wheelchairs. Bed sores are almost entirely preventable.

Known throughout Philadelphia and in the states of PA & NJ for hospital/care facility/nursing home abuse lawsuits, Attorney Brian P. Murphy regularly litigates cases pertaining to pressure ulcers (bed sore) and wrongful death.

In a recent lawsuit (Docket #BUR-L-002324-17, Superior Court of New Jersey, Burlington County Law Division), Brian discovered that multiple failures at the facility led to the development of the pressure ulcer. Mr. Murphy also discovered that there were efforts within the facility to fraudulently conceal & alter medical records. There had even been instances where staff members had documented that they were providing care to the resident, yet the resident had already been moved out of the nursing home. He was relocated to the hospital during the time of false charting. As a result, the nursing home settled the case.

In addition to wrongful death caused by bed sores or pressure ulcers, Mr. Murphy litigates nursing home lawsuits including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Elder Abuse
  • Elopement
  • Falls/Fractures
  • Infections
  • Malnutrition
  • Medication Errors
  • Nursing Home Injuries
  • Dehydration
  • Poor Hygiene
  • False Charting
  • Wrongful Death
  • And other causes of Neglect and/or Abuse

All cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that there are no upfront fees, and you will not be charged until the case settles, at which time Mr. Murphy will be reimbursed for his costs and legal fees.
