Bed sore injuries, also known as ‘pressure ulcers’ are an injury which wears down the skin and the skins underlying tissue after a patient is left to lie on one side of the body for a long period of time. Ranging in levels of severity, bed sore injuries can come in the form of discoloured skin patching to open wounds exposing muscle or skeletal bones in patients.
You’re eligible to claim compensation on behalf of yourself or a family member who’s suffered medical negligence in the form of bed sores as they’re an injury acquired due to faults beyond your control.
There’s often a little confusion around the time frame in which ones eligible to claim compensation for bedsore injuries. In actual fact, when filing a compensation claim, an individual is eligible to claim up to 3 years after diagnosis.

Bed sore injuries come in various forms ranging in severity. Bed sore injuries develop when a high level of pressure is mounted to an area of the body or skin over a short period of time or when less pressure is applied over an extensive time period.
There are many types of bed sore injuries that you can be subjected to, the most common being injuries tending to appear around the hip bones areas resulting in the over laying muscles being affected developing painful wounds ranging in severity.
Other commonly affected areas include:
- Muscles overlying the tail bone
- Lower back muscles
- Back of the head
Each depending on the section of the body the patients left to lay on for an extensive time period.
