Areas of Law Description
- Medical Malpractice
In a Kentucky medical malpractice action, like any other personal injury lawsuit, there are two types of monetary damages: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages compensate injured people for monetary losses and expenses, which they have incurred, or are reasonably likely to incur in the future, and result from another's negligence.
- Birth Injury
Some of the most common causes of birth injuries include improperly using instrumentation to facilitate a delivery, waiting too long to perform a Caesarean section (“C-section”), and improper monitoring of both the mother and child during delivery. Similarly, it is not uncommon for babies to require oxygen after they are delivered. However, an unnecessary delay in providing a newborn infant oxygen after delivery may possibly result in severe brain damage.
- Medication Errors
When a hospital, physician, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider fails to properly monitor a patient’s use of prescription medications, or orders an improper medication, a patient may suffer severe and life-changing injuries. Prescription drug errors ay often result in either liver or kidney damage. However, at times, prescription medication errors can affect other bodily systems, including the heart and lungs.
- Surgical Errors
Every surgical procedure has risks, and patients can suffer poor outcomes, or even death, without his or her physicians committing medical malpractice. However, good and accepted medical standards require physicians to inform their patients about the risks and complications associated with a particular procedure before performing it.
- Hospital Errors and Nursing Malpractice
The American medical landscape changes practically every day. In an effort to maximize profits, hospitals, large healthcare systems, and corporations are buying more physician practice groups. That means that many hospital companies employ both the physicians and nurses who provide patients care and treatment. Previously, in most medical negligence cases, an injured plaintiff would need to sue both their physician and the hospital if a medical mistake occurred. However, due to the recent changes in the business of medicine, it is just as likely that a patient’s attending doctor and nurses work for the same company.
- Wrongful Death
When someone else's negligence or reckless behavior causes a family member's death, the victim's surviving family members may be entitled to bring a "wrongful death" claim. Medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, electrocution accidents, workplace and construction accidents, burn accidents, and slip and fall accidents can all result in death, and be the grounds for filing a Kentucky wrongful death claim.
- Nursing Home Injuries and Elder Abuse
Because of the nursing home population's explosion, adequate resources to provide residents the care they legally and rightfully deserve may be limited. Likewise, more for-profit and publically traded companies now own and operate more long-term care facilities than ever before. Many of these companies prioritize shareholder profits above providing their residents appropriate care. These unfortunate realities may result in our older loved ones becoming victims of nursing home or elder abuse. Nursing home injuries are often preventable, and may result from malpractice.
- Sexual Assault
Sexual assault and abuse can take many forms, including nonconsensual sexual contact or intercourse, unwanted touching, sodomy, rape, harassment, or sexual coercion. The sad reality is that nursing home residents may be sexually abused or assaulted by staff members, other residents, strangers, or family members. The law requires that incidents of sexual assault and abuse in nursing homes be reported to the proper authorities. However, many of these horrific incidents are never reported, thereby allowing the perpetrators to harm and abuse other innocent victims.
- Mental Abuse
Kentucky and federal laws mandate that nursing home residents must be treated with dignity and respect. Those laws also require that nursing home residents must be free from mental abuse. However, all too often, nursing homes violate these laws, by employing staff members who abuse residents either mentally or psychologically. Often, nursing home staff members intentionally inflict distress or anguish upon, or instill fear in, defenseless elderly nursing home residents who cannot protect themselves.
- Physical Abuse
Pursuant to Kentucky and federal law, nursing home residents have the right to be free from physical abuse. All too often, however, our loved ones are physically abused by nursing home staff members. The use of physical force upon nursing home residents can lead to serious injuries.
- Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accident
If you have been injured in a car wreck, trucking accident, or motorcycle accident that was another person's fault, you may be entitled to be recover monetary damages for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The negligent party's insurance company or your own insurance company is responsible for paying these legal damages.

- DUI and Drug-Related Car and Auto Accidents
Car accidents where a driver is drunk, or under the influence of drugs, can be more complex than the average car crash case. For example, if a bar, restaurant, or tavern serves alcohol to a person who is obviously drunk, and that same person causes a car accident while on his or her way home, the establishment may be held liable. This is known as a “dram shop” case. Similarly, if a person has been drinking excessive amounts while attending a private function, the homeowner may be held liable. Moreover, if an adult knowingly provides drugs or alcohol to a minor, who subsequently causes a serious or fatal crash, the adult may be held liable under Kentucky law.
- Bicycle Accident
Unfortunately, bike accidents and crashes are more commonly than we realize. Additionally, because many bicycle riders have very little protection, the injuries suffered in a Kentucky bicycle accident may be more severe than the ones suffered in a car accident. In fact, many Kentucky bike wrecks result in death. For these reasons, if you, a loved one, or a friend has been seriously injured in a Kentucky bike accident, contact Louisville personal injury attorney, Seth Gladstein, to learn about your rights.
- Motorcycle Accident
Every year, approximately 5,000 Americans die in motorcycle accidents. In 2006, approximately 100 people died in Kentucky motorcycle crashes. Unfortunately, the number of people who are injured or die in motorcycle accidents rises every year. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Kentucky motorcycle accident, contact Louisville personal injury lawyer, Seth Gladstein, to learn about your rights.

Seth Gladstein is ready to review your case today at no cost to determine whether you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.
- Vehicle Rollover Accidents
All motor vehicles can rollover. However, studies have shown that sport utility vehicles (“SUVs”), trucks, and vans rollover much more frequently than cars. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s recent data, over 5,000 Americans die each year from injuries they sustain when their SUVs rollover. SUV rollover accidents most commonly occur when SUVs leave the road, and enter the median or travel along the shoulder.
- Trucking Accidents
Recent data from the National Transportation Safety Board shows that truck driver fatigue contributes to 30 – 40% of all trucking accidents. Driver fatigue is a serious issue, because over 5,000 people die, and 100,000 people are injured, every year on American highways. Because trucks, semis, and tractor-trailers are much heavier than cars or motorcycles, trucking wrecks may cause significant physical injuries, and, even worse, death.
- Slip and Fall Accident
"Slip and fall" accidents occur when a person is injured as a result of slipping/tripping and falling due to a dangerous or unreasonable condition on the premises. These accidents may occur either inside or outside of a property. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include wet floors and sidewalks, improper maintenance, poor lighting, and hidden hazards.
- Traumatic Brain Injury
Medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, motor vehicle accidents, electrocution accidents, workplace and construction accidents, and slip and falls can result in mild, moderate, or even severe brain injuries. Traumatic brain injury victims can have numerous symptoms, including difficulty sleeping, short and long-term memory problems, headaches, attention and concentration deficits, seizures, confusion, speech difficulties, and sensory or motor problems.
- Burn Accidents
Many people who have suffered serious burn injuries resulting from others’ negligence often have to endure painful and intensive medical treatment and therapy. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Kentucky burn injury accident, contact Louisville personal injury lawyer, Seth Gladstein, to schedule your free consultation. An experienced personal injury lawyer, Seth Gladstein helps victims of preventable burn injury accidents receive the compensation they deserve.
- Neck and Back Injuries
As all too many Kentucky residents know, back and neck injuries cause many physical problems, and can be debilitating. Moreover, many people suffering from back and neck injuries require extensive and costly medical care and treatment. If you or a loved one has suffered a neck or back injury that another person’s negligence caused, contact Gladstein Law Firm, PLLC, a Louisville, Kentucky personal injury law firm, to schedule your free consultation.
- Electrocution Injury
Electrocution occurs when a person’s body comes into direct contact with electrical current, and the electricity flows through the person’s body. When this happens, the victim may suffer serious personal injuries, or worse, death. Approximately 1,000 people in the United States die every year due to electrocution accidents.
- Insurance Bad Faith
When you purchase insurance, you are entering into a contact. Specifically, in exchange for receiving your monthly or annual premiums, the insurance company agrees to pay for certain losses. However, many times, large insurance companies refuse to pay for losses, even when they are contractually obligated to do so, and fail to give customers any explanation why. This is known as “bad faith.” If you or a loved one has had an insurance claim wrongfully denied, contact Kentucky insurance bad faith lawyer, Seth Gladstein, to learn about your rights.
- Negligent Security
Property owners are legally required to keep others entering upon a premises free from harm. If a property owner fails to implement adequate measures to keep a visitor safe from harm, and the visitor is injured as a result, the property owner may be held liable under a theory known as negligent security.
- Workplace and Construction Accidents
Every year, thousands of hardworking Kentuckians are seriously injured in workplace and construction accidents. Construction and workplace accidents can result in permanent disability and disfigurement, or death. Many employees are injured on the job due to somebody else’s negligence. For example, a worker injured in a construction or workplace accident may be entitled to recover against their employer, a contractor, or the manufacturer of a product or tool. If you or a loved one has been injured in a Kentucky construction or workplace accident, contact Louisville personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights.
