Medical Malpractice

Have you been injured by the negligence of a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider? Medical error accounts for an estimated 100,000 deaths per year, and an astounding 18 percent of hospital patients are actually injured during their stay. Hospitals – and physicians alike – have consistently demonstrated a disinterest in establishing quality systems for error prevention, and we are all potential victims of this apathy. Whether the issue is a failure to diagnose cancer, a surgical error, errors resulting in birth injury, or any other variety of medical malpractice, give our team a call today to learn more about your potential case.

Nursing Home Abuse

There are few trusts more sacred than that between a client and his or her caretaker. When that trust is broken, whether via financial, physical, or emotional abuse, it can be devastating for both you and your loved ones. Even if there is no intentional abuse, unsafe conditions, such as inadequate staffing and unmaintained grounds, can leave your loved one vulnerable. Severe nursing home falls might not be treated with care, and even basic needs, such as food, water, and clean clothes, could be ignored. If you feel that your loved is being abused or neglected, fight back with the help of our aggressive and compassionate legal team.

Car Accidents

Statistically speaking, you can expect to be in at least one serious car accident in your lifetime – and you may be involved in multiple crashes. The average driver files a collision claim every 18 years, and while only .003 percent of car collisions prove fatal, the experience can often incur serious damages, from your totaled vehicle to the injuries of you and your passengers. If you’ve been injured in an automobile crash, you’ll want the experience of a veteran legal team to help you navigate the complexities of traffic law, particularly in the state of Kentucky.

Motorcycle Accidents

Due to the nature and build of the motorcycle, motorcycle accidents tend to be particularly horrific, especially for the rider. Eighty percent of these accidents result in injury or death, and an incredible 1.2 million motorcyclists were treated in U.S emergency rooms between 2001-2008. The state of Kentucky had 89 fatalities and 1,475 injuries due to motorcycle collisions in 2009 alone. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, there is a 75 percent chance that another driver was involved. Our experienced team will fight for the compensation that you need to recover, if your crash involved the negligence of another party.

Trucking Accidents

As many as 5,000 people die in the U.S. every year as the result of commercial trucking accidents. Many trucking companies fail to follow mandatory industry guidelines, cutting corners with maintenance and allowing drivers to work long past the federal limit. Too often, this results in injuries and casualties for law-abiding automobile drivers. Trucking accidents may be due to truck driver fatigue, truck malfunctions, reckless driving, or distracted driving – all issues that involve trucking company negligence. Commercial trucking litigation is tricky, and you’ll want the help of an experienced team behind you, as you file your claim for compensation.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved is always difficult, even when expected. The unexpected death of a loved one at the hand of another’s negligence, however, is a tragedy that no one should ever have to experience. If your loved one has passed due to misconduct or negligence, don’t hesitate to hold the perpetrators accountable and force them to be responsible for their actions. Your efforts will not only give you back financial security, but it may also save the lives of others. You deserve to be compensated, and the negligent parties need to be penalized so that similar tragic mistakes don’t happen again.

Slip & Fall

Taking a fall can result in severe injuries. If your accident was the result of a negligently unsafe environment or a negligent person or entity, you may well have grounds to pursue compensation under the law. Landowners have a duty of care to visitors, and it is their responsibility to keep you safe for the duration of your stay, be it an hour lunch or a weekend getaway. Unfortunately, premise liability law can be tangled mess of ambiguous liability. Having an experienced injury law team at your side can give you the edge that you need to aggressively pursue compensation.

Neck & Back Injuries

Injuries to the back and neck have the unfortunate distinction of leading to chronic medical issues and long-term pain and suffering. Many victims of spine injuries fail to ever fully recover, and are left requiring ongoing therapy, operations, and medications. Back injuries can easily place a person’s life on hold, potentially crippling them or in other ways preventing them from living a normal life. Neck injuries can produce intense pain, and even permanently limit mobility. If you’ve incurred a head or back injury as the result of another’s negligence, call us today. You deserve the compensation required to get your life back on track.

Burn Accidents

Serious burn injuries are not something that you typically encounter every day, but they do happen to a significant number of people each year in America. Burn accidents are usually the result of an unsafe work environment, particularly in the construction industry, though they can also occur in motor vehicle accidents, premises liability accidents, or electrocution accidents. The consequences of burns can be severe, and are often permanent. If you have sustained a serious burn injury, you deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and loss of income. Call the Gladstein Law Firm today to see how we can aid your unique case.

Electrocution Injuries

Like burn injuries, electrocution is statistically more of a hazard in a working environment, although they can happen almost anywhere and to almost anyone. As many as one thousand people die from electrocution every year in the United States – many of them suffering painful burns and long-term disabilities as a result. The point of significant injury in an electrocution is typically marked at 500 volts and above, although people have been known to need serious attention after direct contact with smaller voltages. If you’ve sustained an electrocution injury due to unsafe living, work, or public conditions, give our team a call today.

Workplace & Construction Accidents

Employers are legally responsible for creating a reasonably safe environment for their employees. While mandated workers’ compensation has helped to ensure that most injured workers aren’t simply hung out to dry, these payouts rarely cover the full cost of health care, and may not account for loss of income. If you have found yourself not getting as much as you deserve from your workers’ compensation claim, or if you are having difficulty securing compensation after a workplace accident, you aren’t alone. We’ve worked with clients just like you, and our experienced Kentucky injury team is ready to help you pursue the payout that you are owed under the law.
