Failing To Follow Care Standards Could Be Medical Malpractice

The primary duty of doctors here in Louisiana and elsewhere is to do no harm. In fact, those words are still contained in the oath they take when they become doctors. At the heart of nearly every medical malpractice claim is the alleged failure of doctors and other medical professionals to follow care guidelines and standards meant to keep patients safe from harm.

Medical negligence causes numerous injuries and deaths every year. Errors can take place at any time and in any place. It does not matter if you are in your doctor's office, an emergency room or admitted to the hospital -- you are vulnerable. Most medical professionals are diligent and care about their patients, but even they are human and capable of making mistakes.

If you suffered serious or permanent injury -- or lost a loved one -- due to the negligence of a medical professional, you retain the right to file a medical malpractice claim. However, your choice of attorney should be made carefully. These claims can quickly become complex due to the issues involved. It would be beneficial to have someone intimately familiar with the medical field such as a former doctor.

You could face numerous financial issues associated with your injuries or the loss of your loved one. You can seek a variety of damages in a medical malpractice claim to help with medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, among others. A claim that is successfully litigated in a Louisiana civil court could result in the restitution needed in order to defray these financial losses and help get you and your family back on track financially.
