Medical Malpractice

Kentucky Medical Professional Malpractice and Negligence Attorneys inCorbin

When you visit your doctor's office or are admitted to your local hospital, you're entrusting your health and well being to the medical knowledge and acumen of professional doctors and nurses. And although no one in the medical field is able to guarantee results, there are times when healthcare professionals fail to deliver the level of treatment we have all come to expect and deserve. When a doctor or specialist misdiagnoses his or her patient, pursues an incorrect course of medical treatment, or makes a surgical mistake, that patient may not get better—in fact, his or her condition may deteriorate. If you've been the victim of a doctor's, physician's assistant's, or any other healthcare provider's negligence, then you are entitled to compensation. The Corbin personal injury firm of Freeman, Childers & Howard, Attorneys at Law represents those who have been the victims of medical malpractice in the State of Kentucky.

Obtaining Settlements and Jury Awards for Malpractice Victims

The medical malpractice attorneys at Freeman, Childers & Howard are intimately familiar with the Kentucky healthcare system. Most doctors, nurse practitioners, hospitals, walk-in centers, and clinics carry medical malpractice insurance. Usually, when an insurer is informed of a medical malpractice claim, these insurance companies will immediately make some nominal settlement offer, on the condition that you seek no further legal action. However, initial settlement offers are almost never sufficient to compensate victims for their convalescence, lost wages, or pain and suffering. Retaining the services of a veteran medical malpractice lawyer—like the ones you'll find at Freeman, Childers & Howard—is the first step to making a full financial recovery. When you retain our services, we will get you the settlement that you deserve, or we will litigate the case in a civil court.
