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 that our Louisville medical malpractice attorneys can help you obtain. 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 Kinnard Law, our skilled Louisville medical malpractice lawyers can evaluate your potential case to determine if you have grounds to file a lawsuit. Our dedicated legal team also works 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 for a Medical Malpractice Case?

Medical malpractice claims allow victims to recover financial compensation for their damages. When our Louisville medical malpractice attorneys are fighting for you, your compensation 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 monetary value of your case will depend on the facts involved. At Kinnard Law, 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.
