Medical Malpractice in Kentucky
Medical malpractice is when healthcare providers provide sub-standard care to their patients. Healthcare practitioners are liable to injured patients if they did not act in the same way a reasonably competent healthcare practitioner would under the same or similar circumstances. This could include: mistakes in treatment, improper diagnoses, or a lack of informed consent. Medical malpractice can cause many different kinds of injury: death, prolonged hospital stay, increased pain, adverse reactions to medication, additional medical procedures and/or surgeries, failure of implanted medical devices, and many more.
