Ok, a relative inmate at a prison in Lexington, KY he had been complaining of a kidney pain and problems (stones) since February 2012 and did not receive prompt medical attention to remove the kidney stone in time and has thus loss his left kidney. He is currently still in constant pain and suffering from such ordeal. The prison and likely their doctors did not do what they were supposed to (in my opinion) to prevent such a loss, and did not provide adequate attention to a potentially dangerous/fatal medical condition. What recourse does an inmate have in terms of a legal lawsuit against the prison and/or their doctors? What type of attorneys can take a case like this? Thanks for your time.
I don't know the answer to that question, but I do know that Greg Belzley is the premiiere prisoner's rights attorney in the state. He is the person I call if I have a prisoner's right case come in. Call him at (502) 292-2452. He's a good guy, very knowledgeable, and will give a free consultation.
Contact a medical malpractice lawyer in the Lexington area. A claim of medical malpractice is difficult and expensive to prove and jurors may be biased against inmates. So I don't know if you have a case worth pursuing. But a Lexington area medical malpractice attorney would know better than I do.
