What Are Examples of Personal Injury in Kentucky?

Personal Injuries are classified as an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. There are multiple types of personal injury claims. Personal Injury claims can range from car accidents to dog bites to medical malpractice and even nursing home abuse.

 

Car and Truck Accidents/Motorcycle Accidents

A car or truck accident claim may be proper if you have suffered an injury in a vehicle accident that was not your fault.

Medical Malpractice

A medical malpractice claim may be proper if you have suffered an injury because a doctor or other medical professional was negligent. This could mean a doctor or medical professional has failed to follow proper medical procedures or has performed a wrongful surgery.

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

A slip-and-fall accident claim may be proper if you have slipped and fallen in an area that was dangerous or not properly taken care of. It is an owner’s job to maintain their spaces, on public or private property.

Nursing Home Abuse

If a loved one has suffered abuse while in the care of a nursing home, there may be a nursing home abuse claim. If the abuse of a nursing home resident is active, it may be physical, emotional, emotional or financial. There is also passive mistreatment of a nursing home resident that may include lack of care such as dehydration or poor hygiene including dirty clothing or bedding.
