Bedsore Injuries and Seeking Justice for Nursing Home Residents

Published by Mark Brynteson

With more than two decades of experience in personal injury law, Mark D. Brynteson has encountered distressing cases involving bedsore injuries due to nursing home neglect and abuse. Unfortunately, many residents and their families remain unaware of the resources at their disposal in such situations.

Understanding Your Rights Under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act

Thankfully, the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act empowers victims, holding nursing homes accountable for abuse, neglect, and carelessness. If you or your loved one has developed bedsores during nursing home residency, the facility must demonstrate that the sores were unavoidable and that effective care followed their detection.

Root Causes of Bedsore Injuries and Seeking Justice

Bedsores can arise due to poor care decisions by nursing staff or, more alarmingly, a pervasive culture of physical abuse and neglect within the facility. Shockingly, instances of restraining patients to avoid addressing their needs have been reported. This reprehensible practice leads to uncomfortable sores that can escalate into pressure ulcers,  infections, clotting, contusions, and even death.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.
