Nursing homes who neglect or abuse the elderly or disabled are liable for the injuries they cause. At English, Lucas, Priest, & Owsley, we have significant experience holding negligent nursing homes accountable for their actions.
Some nursing home lawsuits may allege medical malpractice on the part of a nurse or doctor. Most will allege negligence either on its own or in conjunction with medical malpractice. To win a nursing home negligence lawsuit, the plaintiff must first prove that the nursing home breached a duty owed to the plaintiff. Allowing a resident to fall or develop bed sores are examples of ways in which a nursing home may have breached such a duty. If the plaintiff can then prove that the injuries the plaintiff sustained were caused, at least in part, by the nursing home’s actions, the plaintiff may be entitled to damages. If a nursing home resident passed away as a result of negligent conduct, his or her family may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible parties.Knowledgeable Tractor Trailer Accident Litigators
Lawsuits involving tractor trailer accidents also usually allege negligence, this time on the part of the truck driver or trucking company. To successfully litigate a tractor trailer accident, the injured person must prove:
- The defendant (usually the truck driver or trucking company) owed a duty to the plaintiff;
- The defendant breached the duty; and
- The victim’s injuries were caused by the defendant’s actions.
Truck drivers owe a duty to others on the road to drive reasonably under the circumstances. Trucking companies owe a similar duty to follow regulations, train their drivers, and maintain their trucks. A truck driver who speeds or a trucking company that inadequately trains its drivers have breached this duty. If these or similar actions cause an injury accident, the injured person can seek damages.
Tractor trailer accidents are often more complicated to litigate than accidents between two cars. At English, Lucas, Priest, & Owsley, we have been trying tractor trailer accidents in Kentucky for decades. We understand the intricacies of bringing these claims, and ensuring that all evidence is preserved and used appropriately to build your case. Before you hire an attorney for your truck accident case, be sure they have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you succeed.Experienced in Trying Drug Injury Cases
Pharmaceutical cases involve some of the most complex personal injury claims. Litigating such a case successfully requires significant investigation by an attorney with a deep understanding of drug cases. At English, Lucas, Priest, & Owsley, we have years of experience working on and litigating drug cases.
People can be injured by prescription drugs or medical devices due to several factors. Drug manufacturers are required to warn patients of potential side effects and accurately describe the benefits of a given drug. Failure to do so can expose them to liability in failure to warn cases. Similarly, designing or manufacturing a defective drug can make drug companies liable to the people injured as a result of these defects. Patients injured by these drugs can collect damages to compensate them for their injuries.The Largest Firm in Bowling Green
