Review Robert Young

About Me

For most of his 24-year career, Bob Young has practiced extensively in the area of medical malpractice, pharmaceutical and medical device litigation. Because of his work in the field, he has at his disposal a growing database of top-notch national medical experts, often who are uniquely qualified to consult with the firm and sometimes provide expert testimony in a case. Bob also has handled other personal injury cases, including representing individuals who have been injured due to negligence or malpractice. Among the cases he’s handled was the firm’s complicated class-action lawsuits against pharmaceutical giant Merck for damages due to its drug Vioxx. He has also worked on cases against the makers of Avandia, Stryker hip replacement system and the ASR Hip Replacement system. In August 2014, he became  Chair of the Law Practice Division of the American Bar Association. Bob is also a member of the American, Kentucky and Bowling Green-Warren County Bar Associations, American Association for Justice, and Kentucky Justice Association. He is licensed to practice in Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as federal courts.
