Every day in the United States, nearly 30 people die in car accidents caused by drunk drivers. Recently in Lexington, a crashed caused by an alleged drunk driver claimed the life of a young girl.
A devastating accident that left your loved one with a traumatic brain injury was probably the last thing you expected to happen.

Successful medical treatment is a step-by-step process. Those in Kentucky and across the country who seek treatment rely on the knowledge and expertise of doctors, surgeons and other providers. However, if a health care provider makes a mistake in any part of the treatment process, the patient can suffer serious injuries and even death. Something as minor as misreading test results can have disastrous effects. This is what allegedly happened to a man in another state, and a medical malpractice lawsuit was filed.
