Surgical Errors

Are You Suffering Because of a Surgical Error?

Few law firms in Kentucky have the extensive experience and resources necessary to successfully handle medical malpractice claims involving surgical errors. Medical malpractice is a very significant part of our law practice at Hay & Knight, PLLC, and it has been since we were established in 1982. Our firm represents local clients who are near our office in Somerset and those in other areas throughout the state.

For over 30 years, we have remained dedicated and passionate about getting answers and full and fair compensation for victims of medical malpractice and their loved ones. When surgeons or medical care facilities breach the standard of care expected of them, resulting in surgical mistakes, we work diligently to hold them responsible for the resulting damages.

From our office in Somerset, we are ready and available to help surgical error victims throughout the state of Kentucky.

How Can We Help You with Your Medical Malpractice Claim?

We devote significant time and resources into preparing the strongest possible medical malpractice cases for our clients, working with them personally to fully understand their needs, and extending legal expenses so they do not have to be burdened. In order to provide this premium service and representation, we limit our caseload, accepting only cases that involve very serious injuries or wrongful death.

For our clients, we work diligently to demonstrate the three elements that must be proven in a medical malpractice case:

  1. Breach of duty: Not all surgical complications amount to medical malpractice. We will investigate your case thoroughly in order to prove the surgeon’s actions fell below the expected standards of care. This is a breach of his or her duty of care.
  2. Injury: In order to recover damages for surgery malpractice, the error must have resulted in an injury. We consult with specialists in the field who may assess the extent of our clients’ injuries, allowing us to pursue full and fair compensation for things like resulting medical costs, lost income, and more.
  3. Damages: As experienced attorneys, we know the damages often extend far beyond financial consequences. Surgical errors can cause emotional and psychological injuries, and we strive to achieve settlements and jury verdicts that fully compensate our clients.
