Louisville, KY Negligent Supervision Lawyer

Victims Injured Due to Negligent Supervision

We count on authority figures and supervisors to protect us, watch out for our welfare, and take responsibility when things go wrong. Unfortunately, supervisors don’t always take their jobs seriously – nor do they always accept responsibility for accidents when they occur under their watch. If you or someone your care about was hurt while at work, at a construction site, at a nursing home, or at a hospital due to a supervisor’s negligence, carelessness, or even malevolent act, a Louisville, KY negligent supervision lawyer can leverage Kentucky laws to hold wrongdoers to strict account and collect compensation for you.

Examples of Negligent Supervision

Nursing Home

A caregiver assigned with the task of administrating a diabetes medication (such as an insulin secretagogue) forgets to treat the patient – or “over-treats” the patient by doubling up a dose. This negligence/carelessness causes the already sick senior to suffer massive diabetes-related complications. The patient then needs extensive hospitalization and additional medications to recover.

Construction Site Supervision Negligence

An inexperienced but enthusiastic supervisor compels their crew to work through break-time to finish a big project. Although the spirited enthusiasm came from a good place (“let’s get this job done now!”) a 50-something-year-old worker who really needed a break gets so exhausted from the extra labor that he falls off of a high platform and shatters both his legs and one kneecap.

Hospital Negligence

A harried, overworked and sleep-deprived nurse misreads a patient’s chart and prescribes a medication that causes a massive allergic reaction in the patient and kills them. Or maybe she prescribes the correct dose but fails to recognize signs of an adverse reaction.

Boss’s Negligence

An inexperienced supervisor at your corporate office hires a moving company to help you and your team transition into a new office in a new company building. But the supervisor fails to alert the movers to the presence of dangerous, flammable materials that your engineers had left with you. The materials catch fire, and you get caught in the blaze and suffer severe second and third degree burns all over your body.

Determining Negligence and Seeking Justice

In the above fictitious examples we’ve discussed, the supervisor’s negligence and carelessness were obvious. But in real life, accidents and injuries are often far more complicated. The more one examines the details, the more complexities can emerge. That’s why experienced personal injury attorneys advise plaintiffs to collect as much information as possible from the accident. For instance, you might take pictures of the accident or injury, write down witness statements, jot down your firsthand impressions of the injury and its aftermath, and collect police reports and other documentation that might be useful. You might also benefit tremendously from a free consultation with Louisville personal injury lawyer Tad Thomas. Mr. Thomas served for many years in the Office of the Attorney General of the state of Kentucky, including tenure as one of the two Assistant Deputy Attorneys General, and he has vast experience handling a wide variety of personal injury cases, including those that involve negligent supervision. Call (502) 473-6540 for immediate assistance.
