When you receive care from a doctor or other medical professional, you are putting your trust in their capabilities. But what happens when medical care results in greater harm?

We offer free consultations to our clients in Williamsburg, KY for all malpractice cases, and we are ready to go to work for you.

Nursing home negligence

Negligence in retirement homes and skilled nursing facilities is common, causing serious harm to our most vulnerable loved ones. If your family member has been neglected in a nursing home, he or she may be entitled to compensation to cover pain and suffering and medical bills resulting from malpractice.

Oftentimes following a malpractice injury, insurance companies will offer a "one-time" initial settlement, hoping you will accept far less than you could potentially get with representation from a skilled medical malpractice attorney. In many cases, by accepting an initial settlement offer, you are waiving your right to pursue further compensation. Before you accept a settlement offer from an insurance company for your loved one's nursing home negligence claim, it is wise to have your case reviewed by a personal injury attorney with experience handling malpractice cases.

Defective medical devices

In recent years, a number of high-profile malpractice cases have brought the issue of defective medical implants to light. Knee replacements, hip replacements, vaginal mesh implants, and other medical devices have been known to be defective, causing serious harm to patients who receive them. Sometimes, orthopedic surgeons and other doctors may not inform a patient of the risks associated with these medical devices.

If you have received a joint replacement, vaginal mesh implant, or other medical device that has caused you harm, you may be entitled to compensation for your resulting medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
