When you are injured in Pennsylvania due to no fault of your own, you may feel that you are justified in seeking restitution for the damage that has been caused. Your lost wages and medical bills need remuneration. One of the issues that comes up when discussing injury is the occurrence of pressure sores. These are also called pressure ulcers.
These can be quite serious and are caused by not being cared for properly. A non-mobile person needs to have one's position changed every two hours or more in order to avoid this type of injury. Bony areas are the most likely to develop pressure sores. Ensuring that loose clothing is worn is important because tight clothing can exacerbate the problem.
