Louisville Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Seeking Justice for Victims of Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice occurs when a patient becomes injured as a result of a health care provider's negligent act or omission. These acts can come in a variety of forms, but the source can be traced back to some type of negligence or failure to act by the medical provider.
Examples of medical malpractice:
- Failure to follow standard procedures
- Failure to diagnose a medical condition
- Emergency room or hospital errors
- Leaving a surgical instrument inside the patient
- Birth injuries
- Nursing, chiropractor, or psychiatrist negligence
- Medical malpractice in nursing homes
- Prescribing a dangerous drug without evaluating a patient's health history

If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of medical malpractice, our Louisville personal injury attorneys at Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC are here to represent and support you.
