Representing victims of malpractice in Kentucky

Professional malpractice

Hiring a professional such as an accountant or an architect should come with some assurance of their skills. However, there are no guarantees. Even the most accomplished professionals make mistakes. We represent plaintiffs in professional malpractice cases involving:

  • Accountants
  • Attorneys
  • Architects
  • Corporate directors and executives
  • Doctors and other medical professionals
  • Engineers
  • Insurance agents
  • Investment advisors and other financial professionals
  • Medical malpractice

    When you seek medical attention, you trust that the doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional who helps you is fully competent. Tragically, even with the best training and years of experience, mistakes can happen. A medical error can result in serious illness, injury or death.

    Any healthcare professional who does not maintain a standard of care may be guilty of negligence. This includes:

    • Doctors
    • Nurses
    • Chiropractors
    • Physician assistants
    • Dentists
    • Psychologists
    • Psychiatrists
    • Podiatrists
    • Anesthesiologists
    • Physical therapists
    • Occupational therapists
    • Hospitals

    If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation. We represent victims in serious medical malpractice claims involving:

    • Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
    • Inadequate sanitation
    • Incorrect anesthesia
    • Incorrect medication dosage (overdose)
    • Improper treatment
    • Labor and delivery injuries
    • Misdiagnosis
    • Performing a procedure without the patient's informed consent
    • Surgical errors

    Representing professionals in malpractice claims

    Kentucky professional malpractice lawyers

    Workplace errors are often unavoidable. Even with the best training, you may make a mistake that could harm your professional reputation or even cost you your career. But should it?

    When you make an on-the-job error that in some way injures your client, you may face a professional malpractice claim. While these cases can be complex, the burden of proof is on your accuser. This means that anyone who files a claim of professional malpractice against you must prove that you were negligent in your duties and that your action or inaction caused harm to a client.

    At Atkins & Atkins, we are experienced in defending professionals against claims of negligence and malpractice, including representing doctors before the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. Our clients include:

    • Accountants
    • Attorneys
    • Architects
    • Corporate directors and executives
  • Doctors and other medical professionals
  • Engineers
  • Insurance agents
  • Investment advisors and other financial professionals
  • We understand how vital a strong professional reputation is, and we are prepared to represent you against all accusations.
