Attorney Lawrence L. Jones II and Jones Ward PLC were in the national spotlight this week for their role in the case of Michael Nash, a Louisville man who is suing the federal government for $10 million due to a penis amputation. Numerous television stations and newspapers, some as far away as England, ran stories about the lawsuit, and it was the focus of a special report on CNN.
What wasn't mentioned in those segments is the fact that the attorneys at Jones Ward PLC deal with these kinds of cases on a daily basis. For example, the law firm currently represents a coal miner who had his foot and lower leg amputated in a job-related accident in eastern Kentucky. It also represents individuals who have had body parts amputated due to failed medical implants. Perhaps the saddest amputation case of all was a jury trial in which the attorneys at Jones Ward successfully argued in favor of a woman who witnessed the amputation of her newborn baby's head in the hospital as the baby was being born. The jury awarded the woman $1.4 million.
These serious and tragic amputation cases demand specific legal knowledge. They also require an attorney who is both familiar with amputation law, and passionate about making sure the injured person is compensated for his or her loss.
