Louisville Personal Injury Lawyer

Life is a lot more dangerous than it looks. The American Medical Association, for example, ranks medical malpractice as the nation’s third-leading cause of death – right behind heart attacks and cancer, but ahead of accidents. Meanwhile, someone is injured in a Louisville, KY car accident about once every two hours. And these statistics don’t even include deaths and injuries due to nursing home abuse, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, etc.Nobody really wants to think about the unavoidable risks that we all face on a daily basis, but sometimes we have to. Inevitably, a death or a serious injury due to an accident is always tragic. When you realize the accident that caused you so much suffering would not have even happened but for the carelessness of someone else, however, it gets downright infuriating. At Gladstein Law Firm, PLLC, it infuriates us as well.

Nevertheless, it is true that hundreds of personal injury lawyers serve the Louisville, KY metro area alone. Although many of these attorneys are aggressive, very few of them have any experience on the other side of the table. In other words, only a handful have ever represented defendants in personal injury lawsuits. 

The same cannot be said about Seth Gladstein, because he enjoys the benefit of over a decade of experience defending major hospitals and nursing homes against medical malpractice claims.  By 2011, Seth’s experience in the ugly reality of medical malpractice defense led him to a change of heart. His response was to found Gladstein Law Firm, PLLC, and dedicate it to helping injured victims fight for justice.

I was in a crash on a Tarc at the beginning on the year and had some minor injuries. Majority of my injuries stemmed from mental/emotional from having a front row seat to the chaos. I knew that I was going to need a lawyer and I did not want one of those “show” lawyers that you see on commercials. A quick Google search brought me to the Gladstein Firm and I am very glad to have read the reviews. I wanted a more personal experience with my case and to not feel like just another number. At Gladstein, I was connected to Barbi who works nonstop on your case. She has a beautiful spirit and you can tell that she really cares to help you and listen to your concerns. My case was settled within (8) months and that is all thanks to Barbi. Thank you Barbi, you really were a godsend for me in this case.
