If you suspect injuries suffered by you or a loved one were the result of medical malpractice, it is critical that you contact an experienced attorney right way.

If you or someone you love has suffered harm due to the negligence of a health care provider, you may be entitled to compensation. Medical professionals are obligated to meet their “duty of care” when treating patients, and they can be held liable for failing to provide care that meets accepted standards.
Generally, a failure to meet the standard of care means medical providers failed to act as a reasonably skilled medical provider would act under the same or similar circumstances.
Examples of substandard care and medical errors that can give rise to malpractice claims include:
The duty of care that applies to your case depends on the circumstances involved, including the type of injury, the doctors or specialists who treated you, and other particular facts.
At KCB, we can evaluate your potential case to determine if you have grounds to file a lawsuit. We also work with relevant medical experts to prove how doctors, nurses, or other negligent medical personnel failed to meet their duty of care.
Medical malpractice claims allow victims to recover financial compensation for their damages. This may include:
The value of your case will depend on the facts involved. At KCB, we work diligently to calculate how injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one impact our clients’ physical, financial, and emotional well-being so as to pursue the maximum compensation possible.
In Kentucky, there is a deadline (known as the statute of limitations) for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. According to state law, victims of medical malpractice generally have 1 year from the date they knew or should have known that negligence caused their injuries to bring claims.
There may be exceptions to this law and it will depend on your case facts.
Because there are situations that can affect the statute of limitations in medical malpractice actions, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine what deadline may apply to your case.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are fact-specific and highly complex cases, and they require extensive resources, expenditures, and medical expert insight to litigate. At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we have excelled in cases involving medical negligence, and are available to help victims and families across Kentucky and beyond learn more about their rights and options for pursuing the compensation they deserve.
