TORTS, PRODUCTS LIABILITY AND
Tort law is one of the largest areas of civil litigation. It is the field of law that protects and compensates individuals and businesses that have been injured by the negligence, recklessness or intentional acts of wrongdoers. At Bullock & Coffman, we represent clients all across Kentucky who have been injured by another party due to negligence, trespass, defamation, conversion, fraud and a number of other torts.
One of the most common types of tort law is a product liability claim. Product liability refers to the liability of a party or parties along the manufacture chain of a product that ultimately causes an injury to its user. This may include the manufacturer of a products' component parts, the assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler and/or the retail sale owner.
Unbeknownst to many buyers, there are legal protections for buyers when a product is unreasonably dangerous. Likewise, manufacturers are responsible for testing and inspecting their products, while sellers are required to reasonably inspect what they sell to buyers. If you or a loved one has been injured because of a defective product, the attorneys at Bullock & Coffman can help you. We have an experienced team that you can count on to represent your best interests and advocate for you every step of the way.
In addition to product liability claims, another major area of tort law is medical practice claims. We have all heard the term "medical malpractice" at some point, but we never expect it to become a part of our lives. By definition, medical malpractice simply means that a healthcare professional has been negligent and did not provide the standard level of care required of them. Our team at Bullock & Coffman has experience representing our clients across a broad range of areas including, but not limited to:
While there are too many to list here, injuries that are the result of a medical professional’s negligence can be life-altering for the victims of medical malpractice, as well as for their families. Healthcare facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes will have teams of legal professionals and insurance adjusters that focus mainly on disproving any negligence by the healthcare professionals that work for them. They are well versed in providing the victims and their families with medical explanations that may lead you to believe nothing out-of-the-ordinary took place.
