Irvine & Riverside Pressure Ulcer Attorneys

It shouldn't happen, but it does — all too frequently. Elderly and infirm residents of nursing homes often develop pressure ulcers, commonly referred to as bed sores, when they are left lying unattended on one side of their body for too long. Often, the ulcers develop on skin areas nearest large bones, including the sacrum, elbows, ankles and knees. If you or a loved one has experienced pressure ulcers, contact one of our elder abuse attorneys by calling us at 888.959.8508 or email us online.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorney, Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee's individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby. If you were denied wages, misclassified, not given all required breaks or have any other concerns about your pay or working conditions, feel free to call, or email, the employment law team at Fernandez & Lauby for a free consultation. Most unpaid wage cases are handled by the firm on a contingency basis, meaning you don't pay unless you win.
