Kentucky's highest court opens door for malpractice lawsuits

In 2017, the legislature of Kentucky approved The Medical Review Panel Act.

How patients can help avoid becoming victims of medication errors

Some of the most serious medical errors suffered by patients involve prescription medications. These errors include being given the wrong medication, either in a facility or when filling a prescription. Sometimes, patients are given the wrong dosage, perhaps by a nurse or other hospital or nursing home staffer who misreads the instructions. In other cases, patients are given a medication to which they're allergic or that interacts negatively with something else they're taking.

Helping Kentuckians seek compensation after boating accidents

Kentucky has some of the most beautiful lakes in the country, so many Kentuckians take to the water on warm, sunny days to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. People often believe that boating on a lake is considerably safer than in the ocean. However, crashes and other incidents can occur in any body of water where you've got water vessels.
