Were You Injured By Medical Malpractice?

When a person needs medical care, he or she needs to place a great degree of faith in his or her physician and the other professionals who assist in providing that care. When someone is injured because that care was substandard, the responsible party needs to be held accountable.

Medical malpractice can take many forms. Any deviation from the accepted standards of care that causes injury is considered medical malpractice. Common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical error
  • Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Nursing home errors
  • Pharmaceutical errors

I also assist those who have lost loved ones to fatal medical malpractice.

Crafting an effective medical malpractice case requires extensive familiarity with the terminology, an understanding of how to analyze medical records for the most crucial evidence and an ability to quickly identify any deviations from the accepted standards of care. My extensive experience allows me to find the keys to building the strongest cases for my clients.

In Louisiana, a medical malpractice claim needs to be heard before a medical review panel before it can proceed to litigation. I understand how to effectively navigate this step and begin preparing my clients' cases for court.
