Amazing medical breakthroughs occur almost daily that can literally change the life of a person, helping them see better, walk better and have a better quality of life. We all place our lives in the hands of medical practitioners the moment we become a patient of any doctor or hospital. But when the unthinkable happens and a mistake is made that results in pain and suffering, permanent injury or even death, what should you do?
Despite the mantra that "accidents happen," those that made the mistakes should be held accountable and the victims’ rights should be defended. At the Kentucky law firm of T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, we help individuals seek full and fair compensation for their pain and suffering, medical expenses and other damages.

Did Poor Staffing At A Hospital Result In Your Injury?
In many medical malpractice cases, the fault does not lie with the doctor. Instead, the issue is with staffing and training. Hospitals and nursing homes are chronically understaffed, and the staff is commonly underpaid and undertrained. If you believe you or a loved one is not receiving the level of care you deserve, do not be afraid to speak up.
