Our commitment to clients and extensive experience in the practice area means clients can feel confident about placing their trust in our firm when they have complex claims.

Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

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:

  • Obstetrical Malpractice / Birth Injuries
  • Emergency Room Errors
  • Misdiagnosis of Cancer
  • Failure to Diagnose Heart Conditions
  • Surgical Errors
  • Plastic Surgery Injuries
  • Medication / Prescription Errors
  • Anesthesia Errors
  • Orthopedic Malpractice

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.

What Compensation Can I Recover?

Medical malpractice claims allow victims to recover financial compensation for their damages. This may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income and lost future earnings
  • Emotional suffering, including loss of quality of life or loss of companionship

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.

Examples of our Medical Malpractice Results

  • $22.2 million verdict for a woman who was paralyzed when medical personnel inserted an epidural catheter despite her risk factors. This was reported to be the largest malpractice verdict in the history of Tennessee.
  • $15.2 million verdict (the largest in Weakley County, TN history) for a 17-year-old client who suffered severe brain damage when rehabilitation personnel removed his trach tube and failed to respond to his complaints about breathing difficulties.
  • $6.5 million verdict for a surgical error victim who suffered a brain injury after she developed an infection during a tubal ligation surgery, and was improperly cared for by attending personnel.
  • $5 million verdict for the family of a 22-month-old boy who died when a pediatric clinic and hospital failed to properly treat a tick infection.
  • $4 million verdict for a college student who became paralyzed when providers waited too long to treat an arterial venous malformation on his spine.

How Long Do I Have to File a Medical Malpractice Claim in Kentucky?

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.
