About me

 Saving lives in the emergency room and winning complex legal cases are extremely difficult tasks. Dr. Jack Tolliver has made a successful career out of doing both.

 Dr. Tolliver is a former medical school professor and board-certified physician with over 15 years of experience practicing in a level-one trauma center. He now devotes his law practice exclusively to helping victims of medical malpractice. Dr. Tolliver is one of the few malpractice lawyers in the nation and the only one in Kentucky with these credentials.


 Our Unique Doctor-Lawyer Medical Malpractice Experience

  • Medical malpractice cases often revolve around a battle between medical experts. As a doctor and lawyer, Dr. Tolliver can find the best experts for your particular case and work with them to get you the best results.

  • Hired medical experts can and do frequently get it wrong. It takes someone like Dr. Tolliver with years of medical training and experience to recognize when this happens and prevent it from damaging a client’s case.  Dr. Tolliver understands all angles of a medical malpractice case, both the legal and medical issues.

  • Medical records can be altered to try and hide errors. Dr. Tolliver has the technical, scientific and medical knowledge to interpret these records and determine the true facts of a patient’s case.

  • Medical cases can be especially time-sensitive. Not only is Dr. Tolliver personally involved in every case our firm accepts, we also have a staff of additional physicians and nurses to ensure that evaluations are made quickly and thoroughly.


After many years of practice as a physician, Dr. Tolliver knows and understands what is and is not medical malpractice.


Why Do You Need a Lawyer Who Only Handles Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice cases require a precise combination of skills to decipher the victim’s medical history, hold medical experts accountable and pursue the maximum possible recovery. Mastering the technical, medical and legal knowledge behind this specialized area of law is the key to our continued success.

We are one of a few law firms in the nation that is exclusively dedicated to the area of medical malpractice. While some attorneys will not even consider handling medical malpractice cases, we focus all our efforts and resources toward advocating for victims. Why? We believe that people who have been hurt as the result of a medical professional’s negligence deserve to have the best possible legal representation.
