Congratulating Tad Thomas, the New Secretary of the American Association for Justice

Published on Jul 31, 2019 at 11:27 am in News.

At Thomas Law Offices, we take pride in all of the ways we’re able to assist our local communities and help clients who are in need of quality legal representation. We’re also proud of every effort we take to fight for a fair and effective trial jury system. We believe that every American has a right to hold another person, group, or corporation liable in cases of wrongdoings or negligence– no matter the size of a corporation’s bank accounts. The civil justice system gives Americans this right.

Tad Thomas has served at the forefront of one of the leading organizations in the nation that supports the civil justice system for many years. This organization is none other than the American Association for Justice (AAJ). AAJ works hard to strengthen the civil justice system and protect the rights of injured victims who can hold responsible parties accountable via trial by jury to enact improvements and safeguard other potential victims at local, statewide, and federal levels.

Lawsuit Against River City Order of Police for “Ponzi Scheme” Death Benefits

Published on Apr 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm in News.

On April 8, 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed against the River City Fraternal Order of Police in Jefferson County because of the loss of death benefits.

Officers from the old Jefferson County police force were first offered a special death insurance-like program by their union in 1991. They stopped taking new members, however, when the county and city police departments merged with their unions. The benefit worked like a supplemental insurance policy. For decades, officers paid $10 a month for a $10,000 payout in the event of their passing. The money was supposed to go to their loved ones to help with funeral expense.

Kentucky Rules Medical Malpractice Review Panels Unconstitutional

Published on Dec 11, 2018 at 9:45 am in News.

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Kentucky’s highest court unanimously ruled that a 2017 state law, which required medical malpractice claims to be reviewed first by an expert advisory panel, is unconstitutional.

In June 2017, the Medical Review Panel Act, a tort reform measure designed to weed out dead-end medical malpractice cases and prevent possibly negligent doctors from leaving the state, was struck down by the Kentucky Supreme Court because it delayed citizen’s access to the courts.
