Preventable medical errors kill and seriously injure many Americans every year. In fact, a 2016 study published in The BMJ medical journal labeled “medical error” as the third leading cause of death in the United States. This is unacceptable. Cooley Iuliano Robey aggressively pursues medical malpractice claims for our clients who have been harmed or killed due to negligence or reckless mistake. Doctors and other medical professionals must be held accountable for the pain and suffering that result from medical negligence, or as it is often called, “medical malpractice.”
Healthcare providers have an absolute duty to safely and correctly treat patients. Medical malpractice or negligent act refers to breach of this duty during the course of medical treatment by a doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare provider causing injuries or death to a patient. Delay in diagnosis may also have serious consequences to the patient and may give rise to a claim. Patients rely on their medical providers to provide them with accurate diagnoses, professional care and most importantly, respect. Oftentimes, doctors or other treating professionals will try to “mask” their mistake by performing even more procedures, surgeries or treatment, only to make matters worse. If you believe your doctor has committed medical malpractice, you need legal assistance from a law firm that has expertise in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
There is a one-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases in Kentucky.
This implies that a medical malpractice claim must be brought within one year of the negligent act or omission, otherwise, it will be considered time-barred. This one-year limit has various subtleties, which are detailed in Kentucky case rulings. As a result, if you suspect you have grounds for a medical malpractice claim, you should consult with a medical malpractice lawyer.
