Types of Cases We Handle

Part of our mission as medical malpractice lawyers is to examine every detail in the incident and determine where fault lies. When one thinks medical malpractice, they often think of physicians or surgeons who have committed an error. While that is one example, the problem can extend beyond the doctor’s office or operating table. You may take action against negligent nursing homes, urgent care centers, and name hospital care staff as responsible the damages.

These are examples of the type of medical malpractice cases that we can handle:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Hospital-acquired infections
  • X-ray errors
  • Pharmaceutical errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Incorrect medication or dosage was given

In Louisiana, note that there is no cap on the amount of compensation that you may seek. However, note that individual health care providers have a liability of up to $100, 000 only, and the total amount of recovery available is only $500, 000. Furthermore, the statute of limitations is only one year for medical malpractice cases. That means, you only have one year to initiate a claim after discovering the injury or one year from the date that the incident occurred.
