Congratulations to our friend Tom Rhodes and Robert Brzezinski of Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. who played a significant role in securing justice for a New Mexico man who developed acute pressure sores during a lengthy 2011 ICU stay at Presbyterian Hospital located in Albuquerque. Mr. Rhodes served as co-counsel with attorneys Randi McGinn and A. Elicia Montoya of McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, P.A.
Terrible story. While admitted at the hospital, the plaintiff Mr. Webb was unable to care for his own needs and was forced to rely on the intensive care unit staff. In six short days, wounds started to develop due to inadequate repositioning of his body. These ‘pressure sores’ developed into significant stage 4 ulcers…one of which is still not fully healed.
Thanks to the work of Mr. Rhodes and his colleagues, they were able to hold the hospital accountable for their negligence. While no amount of money will fully compensate Mr. Webb for what he endured, the hope is that this type of pain and suffering can be prevented moving forward.
Everyone here at Advocate Capital, Inc. appreciates the important work done by this team of talented litigators who have dedicated their lives toward achieving justice for so many. Thank you for what you do!
