What are never events?

Given that Kentucky doctors, surgeons and many other medical professionals attend years of schooling and training before ever providing hands-on patient care, you may assume that they commit relatively few medical mistakes. The truth of the matter is, however, that doctors everywhere commit serious and even fatal mistakes every year. In fact, the medical industry calls completely preventable medical errors “never events” because there is no reason that they should ever happen.

Recognizing the role that tire defects play in car accidents

A serious car accident can happen without warning and so fast that you may not even know exactly where or why you crashed. Determining the causes of a multivehicle collision can be even more difficult, as your car may have been hit in multiple places and/or struck other vehicles as well. In the process of determining who, if anyone, is at fault in your injury accident, you may not immediately consider the role that a tire blowout played in the incident. Defective tires and tire malfunctions contribute to thousands of serious and even fatal collisions every year. That is why the law firm of Gary C. Johnson is committed to fully investigating accident cases in order to identify incidents involving safety defects.

The serious effects of lead in children’s toys

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that federal measures have been effective at reducing the blood lead level in children. For example, the CPSC limits the amount of lead in a child’s product as well as how much lead is in the paint or coating on the product. In Kentucky and across the country, toys are generally expected to contain 100 parts per million or less of lead content.

Serious questions follow fatal head-on collision

All motor vehicle drivers across the state of Kentucky and the entire country are required to learn and abide by strict road safety guidelines. Not only is it the responsibility of every motorist to follow traffic signals but also avoid engaging in such dangerous practices as distracted driving and drunk driving. Unfortunately, however, state and federal regulations do not prevent some motorists from risking the lives of themselves and others on the road.

Know what to do when an uninsured motorist hits you

By law, motorists in Kentucky are required to carry auto insurance. Unfortunately, too many people allow their coverage to collapse or simply never purchase it. The Insurance Information Institute reports that roughly one in eight drivers in 2012 lacked car insurance. At Gary C. Johnson, P.S.C., Attorneys at Law, we know how frustrating it can be to get into an accident with an uninsured motorist. There are a few steps you can take to ensure you receive compensation for your damages.

What damages are available from a medical malpractice claim?

When medical negligence causes you harm, you have the right to seek damages. Under Kentucky law, any medical malpractice claim must be filed within one year of the injury. You are able to hold both facilities and people accountable when mistakes such as failure to diagnose, medication errors or birth injuries occur.
