Louisiana medical malpractice law is a unique, ever changing area of personal injury law and the time period for bringing a claim is very limited.

What constitutes medical malpractice?
Call it what you will – medical malpractice, medical negligence, error in judgment, lack of knowledge or skill or simply a mistake. When a doctor, nurse or hospital provides medical or surgical treatment that is below the reasonable and expected standard of care, and you suffer an injury as a result, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages.
You entrust medical professionals with your health and that of your family. When a doctor or hospital breaks that trust by failing to meet a reasonable standard of care for your particular injury or illness, Louisiana considers the action (or inaction) to be medical malpractice.
Hospitals aren’t the only source of medical errors. Clinics, doctors’ offices, pharmacies, physical therapists, chiropractors and nursing homes all represent potential points of harmful or fatal medical mistakes.
Not every medical accident or unfortunate outcome constitutes medical malpractice. It takes an experienced Louisiana medical malpractice attorney to know the difference. Because these suits are often complex and costly to pursue, affected patients and their families need to make sure they have a claim worth presenting before a jury.
