Our 6-Step Medical Malpractice Case Process

Step 1
Free Consultation

Call our Lexington office at 859-309-8225 or our Eastern Kentucky office at 606-634-9600 to speak with an attorney regarding your injuries and circumstances. If we’re the best representation for you, we’ll schedule an introductory meeting.
Step 2

Your personal attorney will meet with you and your family (wherever you are) to discuss your injury, understand your unique needs, and walk you through the process.
Step 3
Collect + Evaluate

Our firm will collect all necessary documents (like medical records and bills) to assemble an understanding of your options. And we’ll evaluate the those records internally and often by sending your records to a medical expert.
Step 4
File Lawsuit

If our internal review of your records and a medical expert agrees that a doctor strayed from the accepted “standard of care” resulting in harm to you, we will prepare to file a law suit in court.
Step 5

When we take a medical malpractice case, we don’t back down. After the lawsuit is filed and the defendant(s) are served with a court summons, we begin to develop your case further through written discovery and depositions. It’s likely we will file motions with the court to make the defense attorneys hand over documents. And we will prepare the case for trial.
Step 6
Trial/Settlement + Follow Up

We will take your case to trial, pick a jury, and present the evidence on your behalf. In most malpractice cases, the doctor(s) involved have to consent to their insurance company paying any settlement. So unless the doctor agrees to their insurance company paying a settlement, we present a compelling story that shows how badly the doctor(s) strayed from the accepted standard of care. Sometimes those doctors don’t want every mistake of theirs aired in public and will consent to a settlement. However, we always approach each case as if we’re going to trial.

Just because the work is done doesn’t mean the relationship is over. We follow up with you and your family to make sure you’re doing well and offer assistance where needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is medical malpractice?
A legally-recognizable medical malpractice claim exists when a doctor strays from the accepted “standard of care” resulting in harm to a patient. A bad medical outcome does not automatically equal medical malpractice.
Can a nurse, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner or other healthcare provider be held responsible for medical malpractice?
Yes. Often these providers work under the direction of a doctor who may also be responsible for the actions of these providers.
How long can I wait before filing a medical malpractice claim?
In general, the statute of limitation for medical malpractice in Kentucky is one year. However, under certain circumstances, that time period is longer. For instance, if a child has been injured as a result of medical malpractice, you have a longer time to file depending on the age of the child. Or, in some cases, if a doctor only recently informed you that some injury you have was caused by something a doctor did years ago (like leaving a surgical sponge in your belly during a surgery) and you had no way of knowing about it until recently, you may be able to still pursue a medical malpractice claim.

Because medical malpractice claims are so complex and a proper evaluation takes time, you never want to put off getting a free consultation with our Lexington malpractice lawyers. If you think your family member may be a victim of medical malpractice, it’s important to call our Kentucky medical malpractice attorneys as soon as possible. Often the worst conversations we have are with people who waited a little too long to talk to an attorney and now they cannot pursue what would have been a valid claim.
