Medical malpractice: Woman seeks justice after negligent care

Advanced technology and tighter regulations have made the world of health care somewhat safer and more efficient. When a patient seeks medical treatment, he or she does so with the faith that doctors and providers will combine technology with expertise to diagnose and treat the problem or illness. However, most people would be shocked to find out that medical malpractice continues to be one of the leading causes of death and injury in Kentucky and across the United States.

Roadway polishing can lead to serious injuries and death

Interstate 75 is a dangerous corridor, but do you know why? One of the issues that has caused collisions is the fact that the roads are simply too slick. Take, for example, an issue that was addressed in November. There had been several serious collisions in the same location on I-75, and it finally drew enough attention to get a construction team out to fix it.

Truck accidents: Car pinned underneath trailer for over an hour

For motorists, few things are as intimidating as driving at high speeds alongside massive tractor-trailers. However, this is a daily occurrence for many drivers in Kentucky. Interstates and major highways across the state are heavily utilized by commercial traffic at all hours of the day. Unfortunately, as populations continue to rise, truck accidents will likely follow suit. A driver was injured in a recent crash between a car and a tractor-trailer, but authorities said it could have been much worse.

Medical malpractice suit involving young girls draws attention

It's common knowledge that physicians are some of the smartest and most capable members of society. Kentucky patients trust that their doctors will give them the appropriate treatment to bring about healing and recovery. Successful medical treatment is a process, and patients can experience major complications if any step is missed during their treatment, no matter how minor the mistake may initially seem. Tragically, medical malpractice continues to be one of the major causes of injury and death in the United States.

The most dangerous road is the mile closest to your home

If you are like most adults, you probably have specific routes that you travel to work and other obligations each day. You may take the same streets habitually, leading you to feel comfortable and safe driving in those areas. However, what you feel is a false sense of security based on your familiarity with those roads and not on the statistical danger you face.

Tips for filing a medical malpractice claim

When a person seeks medical treatment, he or she usually assumes that they are safe and taken care of. However, humans will make mistakes, and medical mistakes happen more than most people realize. In Kentucky and across the United States, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death. For those who have been affected by medical malpractice, here are a few things to consider before pursuing legal action.

Medical malpractice claim ends in a substantial settlement

When Kentucky residents visit a doctor with an illness, they place their lives in the doctor's hands, and trust that the doctor will use his or her knowledge and expertise to make the correct diagnosis. Even these days, it is not uncommon for a physician to misdiagnose a condition or illness. A misdiagnosis can lead to permanent injuries or even the death of the patient. In another state, a medical malpractice case ended in a substantial settlement.
