Louisville Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Serving Clients throughout Kentucky
Patients have a reasonable expectation that their doctor will follow the standard of care, make correct decisions and react quickly in the event of an emergency. When something goes wrong, patients are often left wondering how such a mistake happened. At Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC, we help people who have been injured by medical malpractice.
If you or someone you know has been seriously injured by an emergency room error, hospital negligence, or a doctor’s negligence, contact our Louisville medical malpractice attorneys. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss the advisability of filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our firm handles all cases on a contingent fee basis.
When Communication Is Ineffective, Mistakes Can Be Made
A breakdown in communication between physicians, nurses, and other hospital staff can result in mistakes. The wrong medicine may be administered, a patient’s chart may be dictated inaccurately because a doctor is fatigued from working an overnight shift, or a nurse may not communicate to a doctor the change in a patient’s status. Our dedicated Louisville lawyers work with professionals in various medical fields to analyze the situation and the patient’s medical history to figure out what should have been done.
Our medical malpractice experience includes handling cases involving:
- Birth injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Closed head injuries
