Medical Negligence


PPOA is one of the largest firms in Kentucky with a majority of its practice dedicated to the defense of medical professionals. Our attorneys have decades of experience and have tried hundreds of cases in the defense of hospitals, physicians, and other medical professionals. Every year since the firm’s inception our attorneys have been recognized by the legal community as some of the best attorneys in the defense of medical malpractice claims by Louisville Magazine, Best Lawyers, and Super Lawyers.

Our attorneys also recognize that every medical malpractice lawsuit presents distinct factual circumstances and demands that the attorneys handling each suit understand the medicine and science underlying each case. This requires our attorneys to work closely with our clients to learn the specifics of each case and to find the best expert witnesses to defend against the claims being made.

Our attorneys appreciate the unique aspects of defending hospitals, physicians, and other medical professionals. Defending a physician against a medical malpractice claim is considerably different than defending a hospital as part of the exact same claim, and creating a successful defense for each requires attorneys who understand the critical differences. Unlike many other firms who specialize in defending physicians or defending hospitals, the attorneys at PPOA have experience defending against all types of claims. This allows our attorneys a unique perspective in preparing a defense of each case and to successfully present our clients’ case at trial.

In addition to our experience defending medical malpractice lawsuits, our attorneys regularly handle other matters related to medical negligence. We provide consulting and investigative services to our hospital clients, and defend physicians and other medical professionals before medical licensure boards and in other peer review settings.
