Doctors and other healthcare professionals have a legal and moral duty to treat patients according to professional standards. One mistake could cause significant harm, or might even be fatal. However, victims and their families often aren’t in a position to determine whether an error occurred. My name is Michael D. Lindsey, and I’m an accomplished Kentucky personal injury lawyer who represents clients in a full range of medical malpractice actions. From my office in Bowling Green, I take on doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and other medical providers whose negligence has triggered or worsened an injury or illness.
My firm handles a wide array of Kentucky medical malpractice lawsuits on behalf of Kentucky plaintiffs, including cases stemming from:
Like other personal injury claims in the state, medical malpractice actions must be filed within one year of the incident or the date the harm could have been reasonably discovered. You might have heard about the law requiring approval of malpractice claims by a medical review panel before a lawsuit can proceed, but that has been overturned by the Kentucky Supreme Court. In a free initial consultation, I will outline the relevant law and how it applies to your circumstances.
The type of medical care provided before and during childbirth could alter a family forever. Oxygen loss or the improper use of forceps might trigger short- or long-term conditions such as broken bones or cerebral palsy. After this type of tragic incident, my firm uses obstetric expert testimony to identify where the problem originated. In court and settlement discussions, I prepare a detailed argument regarding the effects the birth injury will have on the entire family.
So many people rely on nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and other facilities to take care of elderly and disabled loved ones. Sadly, this trust is often violated and vulnerable residents are mistreated in many different ways. My firm takes aggressive action in cases of elder abuse and other types of misconduct committed by nursing homes and their workers. Whether the specific harm stems from neglect, malnutrition, poor hygiene, dehydration, improper safety measures or something else, I’ll investigate each charge thoroughly to help hold negligent caregivers and institutions accountable.
